Sometimes, as a photographer, I like to capture my overall impressions of an amazing event like Saturday’s football game.
The nostalgia and fellowship in the grove, the drama and pageantry on the field at Vaught-Hemingway and the family pride in the stands.It’s all there to see if you take a closer look and that’s what I hope to do with these images. Give you a closer look at what one football fan, sitting in the stands around the 50 yard line, noticed by just craning his neck and opening his camera lens. Enjoy:
