Week 28, Day 198, November 7, 2009, Sectional Champions

My sons football team won Section IV D Class for New York State Football tonight.  This is the first time my son's High School Team has ever done that.
There was lots of celebrating in town tonight.  (Sometimes it's a lot of fun to live in a small town.)  The Team had a Police, and Firetruck escort back into town.  Main Street was lined with people cheering for them.  Norman Rockwell would love it.

This is one of those times of pure joy by all the people in the photo.  It isn't often that these types of opportunities come along.

Lessons Learned:
  • I need to remember my memory card.  I arrived at the football game. The proper lens was on the camera.  I cleaned the lenses.  I had my press pass. My memory cards were at home on my desk.  Luckily there was a store over one block that sold them.
  • I took horrible photos for the first several minutes of the game.  I was to excited, and wasn't paying attention to the camera settings.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/200 sec, Aperture f/4.0, ISO 1600, Focal Length 70 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 114mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM, handheld.

and how did Alan himself do?

Allen did great. He had some nice tackles on the punts, and played great on the line keeping the Delhi defense out.

Congrats to your son! You really captured a joyful moment. I bet it would be fun photographing some action shots at a football game.
