52 blessings 22.2010

I hate to take another week off in getting back on track with the 52 pics of the week so I’ll move my lazy butt and get with it.I’ve been very blessed to shoot sports photography for a local football team here in Wenatchee. I started taking pictures for the Rams in 2004 with my FUJI FINEPIX. I’ve come a long way and now I’m shooting with a Canon 1D Mark II with a 300 f/2.8L and 1.4 extender. Of course, I don’t own the 300 f/2.8 but I have a good friend who lets me borrow it now and then. Last year, I retired as the, “official photographer for the WV Rams. I wanted to focus my time in different areas. This years season, I showed up at their first game and set up a World Vision booth and snapped a only a few shots. It was fun, but I was more excited about getting TWO sponsors for World Vision kids. However, I do miss the fun of trying to get the shot.I was reminded of that tofsy as I was invited back to shoot for a Rams playoff game. I’m not sure I’ve yet to get that one football shot I’ve been longing for… but I just might keep coming back anyhow. I figure it’s like a game of golf… you can take a hundred bad shots, but you get one nice shot and you just know you have to come back and try again. I have a LOT of bad shots, but sometimes I get so close to the shot I’m looking for.Today wasn’t the bang up, action packed game… but the Rams did win and now they get to move on step closer to the championships. I’m glad they are doing so well and I hope they get to the championships. Deep down in my heart, I think I will always be a Rams photographer… If they continue to have me.peace.johno~

June Desktop for 2010

Hey everyone. I know it’s been a long time and many of you are waiting to see the pics from my trip to Uganda… Well, so am I. I really haven’t had the chance to get a good look at them, let alone do the needed post work on the favorites. I seem to have dropped the ball as they say. I’ve also dropped the ball on paying for my domain names… Right now I’m having trouble with my “lightexposure.org” site. If you wish to visit that site, you must use, http://johno.smugmug.com and you should find yourself in the right place. I realized this because I’ve been up late nights and early mornings trying to rework my website. I’m hoping to launch something completely different this next month, so stay tuned for something new. As a peace offering to the many 5 of you who have not tossed a flower on my grave and written me off as MIA or dead, I hope you enjoy this shot taken on lake Atitlan in Panajachel, Guatemala. ¬†You can download it HERE.Peace. johno~
