Lost and Found

This came from this situation last year. I'm going through old Little League pictures to put together a little portfolio for the parents who won't see their kids play at Fleet Field since it closed. I really love assignments like this. The strange and mysterious pictures that exist in regular life.

Hampton Roads Fashion

Final Days of Fleet Park

After 54 years, Fleet Field was closed by the Navy. Sweet ball players played their last innings there on Saturday. Or, as some little leaguers said, the last "endings." I photographed there last year here and here.

Veterans Day

Michael Larson of Cub Scout Pack 188 rested in the grass before a ceremony honoring the black veterans buried at Calvary Cemetery in Norfolk on Veterans Day, Friday, November 11, 2011. Calvary Cemetery was established as a black cemetery in 1877, and many of Norfolk's black citizens were interred there until the desegregation of cemeteries in the mid-1970s.

Racing around in the dark, following zombies around and trying to make pictured in a twenty minute period, before deadline on Halloween . . . thankful for all the hard work I've been doing recently. Yes, It's been an while since I've blogged. I've been working on a new story. More to come. . .
