The day before I started blogging again the Orioles played a great game of baseball.
Most of the time this sport can be incredibly repetitive, forcing the photographer to really make something happen for their images. Other times, the photo gods bless us and things just fall together. This was one of those times.
In a long 13 inning match-up against the Red Sox, the O's managed to pull out on top with a base hit by Chris Davis out to left field. This brought home Nick Markakis, ending the marathon of a night.
Sometimes I wish that more assignments were like this until I realize that the rarity is what makes them special and the job of the photographer is to be ready when that happens.
Luck often favors the prepared.
Until next time, take care!
