Athletics and Dance

It’s been a while since I photographed a sports event. I don’t plan on going back to this sort of thing, but it’s allays fun to look back on my Athletics and Dance portfolio.

Round Rock Express

Just in the knick of time, we made it to a Round Rock Express AAA game. They only have a few more home games left this season, so I’m glad we were able to see them. Besides taking photos, my favorite part of sporting events is the food. At Dell Diamond, I stumbled upon the greatest piece of ballpark food I’ve ever seen: a…

Yesterday, I made a trip downtown to the Convention Center to pick up my bib and t-shirt at the Fitness Expo. Today,…

Color Me Rad

We knew we were in for a good time when, at the starting line, the guy running the show announced on his blow horn “Do not try hard.” We actually ran quite a bit though! Most of these photos were taken by my mom (thanks mom!)…
