Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium Trip (Part 3)…

August 29th, 2008 · No Comments

See part 2 here. Up bright and early (well, 8am, which is bright and early after getting checked in dark and early), I had a quick bite to eat and headed down the road in great weather towards the subway that would take me to Fenway park. The subway was pretty packed with people, due […]

Several of my images will make an appearance in the 2009 calendar for my airline’s cargo division. This is kind of a big deal to me, since it is the first time I will be compensated for my work as a photographer. I was given the choice of a cash payment or a positive-space round […]
