The Best Photographic Subjects Are the Ones I Once Bounced on My Knee

My oldest Grandson Alec played catcher for one of the Millsap little league teams.   Here are a few images from a game against their future team-mates… the other Millsap Bulldogs.    The good guys won.


I was using the Nikon D700 with a Sigma 150-500 handheld from the outfield fence.  Low light was clearly not a problem.  Some of these were shot toward the sun and I had to adjust in post processing.  But the goal was to get a few memorable photos of my boy playing ball so I am pleased.  In this grandpa’s opinion it is nearly impossible to take a BAD photo of Alec unless I leave the lens cap on.

Week 17 – My Hunting Buddy

Alec gave me a hand preparing one of my deer stands and scouting the area.

We found these growing out of the creek bank while following some turkey tracks

Alec in front of stone outcropping that looks like a cave entrance.  This was fertile ground for a 7-year-old boy’s imagination.
