Pacific Islanders 34...SF Buccaneers 14....Way to go Islanders! I was like a little kid waiting for the first game of the season...I thought I would have to wait 8 months before shooting football again...then I discovered The Pacific Islanders with the Northern California Football League. I would text my kids the count down til first game...we were all excited...sadly they couldn't join me for the first support crew...then Thursday I came down with the most horrendous flu I have ever had...My son Austin had to take BART into the city to get me and drive me home from work...spent most of Friday and Saturday morning in bed...but I really wanted to do this game...I was too excited not to...Sadly it showed in my energy was down...I was weak and dizzy and many times I thought of just heading out early...there is another photographer there so I knew it wasn't like they wouldn't have any shots....but I stuck it out and glad I was a great game! I don't know about you but I see some improvement...had some lens issues with the lens I rented...slow to focus and then it just got worse as the game went on, fortunately I was able to finish....big bummer....There is next week right? I like what I got...I just usually like more.

My kids and I went to Hawaii last year around this time....had the best time ever! Last week there was a break in the I put my top down in my little convertable beetle we named Ruby...and the song that played often while there came on the radio...for a few moments I was back in Hawaii cruising around the Island...all that was missing was my little people...If you must know the song was Apple Bottoms Jeans...I'm sure that isn't the name ...but it's all I know about called both kids and we had a moment together. I wish we were there now! Here are a few of my favorite shots that are on this computer...I'll post more soon.
