Friday night lights..

Living the tv show. I never watched the show, so I’m not sure if I am living it.  I was however at the local high school that our children attended for the Friday night football game. In many of the past years I was part of a group of parents (usually men) who shot still and video pictures of the game. The still pictures would be made available to the parents and players during the week after the game. The video would be edited and turned into a game film for the entire season. Usually this would be shown at the year-end banquet.

I took last year off from being involved with the high school. We (my DW) were involved for eight years in everything that our children were interested in. Last year was our year off.  I eased back into the photographer’s group at a scrimmage two weeks ago. Tonight was both feet in, as it were. I shot 900 pictures tonight between the ROTC, the band and the football team. I edited them hard. I think I kept 600 of the pictures. This camera makes me look good.  We stayed for the first half and the band’s halftime show. The halftime score was 19 to 0, in favor of the home team. The final was 19 to o, in favor of the home team. I guess I did not miss much in the second half.  Yes, 900 pictures in only half of a football game.

Thursday was a lacrosse Thursday.  My brother the weatherman joined us in Manalpan for the game. Neither of us had a goal. I feel that I am playing better. I am making better decisions when I have the ball. Now if I could catch a few more of the passes thrown at me. I hit the goalie twice shooting and missed the goal four times. That is a pretty active night for me.

Thursday afternoon I went to the Shark River Inlet to take pictures. Different inlet, different day. The video is below. A few notes about the video: the cormorant (?) in the water has a fish in its mouth. In the pictures it is trying  to get a fish down its throat. The huge seagull has a hook in the right side of its mouth. I guess this has not impeded its eating. The red boat coming in the inlet is a lobster boat returning from checking traps in the Atlantic Ocean.  The two pictures at the end of the flowers and the railing are an artistic attempt on focus. In the first picture the focus is on the railing and the town name “Avon by the Sea”. In the second picture the focus is on the flowers..

The Shark River Inlet video can be found here. The pictures below will have captions were needed. Thanks for reading and ..

Namaste
