Getting to second base.

Preparing to take a picture from second base at Yankee's Stadium

Well, I never played anything but softball when I was in 2nd grade or something, yet somehow I’ve managed to find myself on holy ground at second base in the new Yankee’s stadium. And the majority of my teachers never thought I’d get anywhere (except for Judy Hemphill).

If you’re wondering WTF, well let me explain. Apparently you can’t actually make a commercial starring the Yankees and film at the stadium. You have to take an awesome ferry to Staten, shoot them there and fill in the stadium later in post. So, somehow, I got to be the lucky guy let onto the field to take reference photography. Unfortunately, I couldn’t take a tri-pod out with me as the turf is worth more than the GDP of small countries or something.

Hello world!

First Post.

Technology is now to the point that I can run my own crappy blog with a few clicks of my mouse. So I blame society.

Shortly I’ll be updating this with pictures of my recent travels. This is me at the airport near Paris. I spent the next 7 hours waiting for a plane there. However, they comped my ticket and then some. Thanks Air France!
