August 19, 2012 - Marlins at Rockies

Hot, bright day at Coors, and a win over the visiting Marlins to even the series at 2 each and go 5-2 on the homestand. The relevant runs were off of Pacheco's bat and I got some decent jube at home plate.

August 18, 2012 - Marlins at Rockies

And for my second weird MLB record of the year (first one back in June)... Giancarlo Stanton hits a homerun in his sixth game at Coors Field, after also hitting homeruns in his first five games played there since last year. I was well positioned for the hit itself but the timing and focus wasn't quite perfect, so I'd settle for some of that famous Marlin's jube with colorful Jose Reyes.

August 11, 2012 - Polen/Calderwood Wedding

I decided to bring my camera with a 50mm f/1.8 lens and a flash to a friend's wedding, even though I was an invited guest and not an official photographer. My first self-assigned task was to shoot the group who was stuck at the base of the mountain waiting out a thunderstorm, which caused the ceremony to run about an hour late. The photographer they hired took off pretty early and I tried to supplement her coverage, including a fun trip to the base area bar "9280 Taphouse" for the after-party. Full gallery here.

August 4, 2012 - Dirt Jumping - Frisco Adventure Park

Rode the GS up to Frisco for a little dirt jumping at some sweet public trails with Winston and Fuller. Breck local Danny Peirce had the moves and was fun to take pictures with. The light sucked but everything else was awesome. See the whole gallery at my Photoshelter page.
