Jezza’s Digital Follies: Thompson Bucks County Classic

Bucks_classic_2k15-465
This is probably one of my favorite events to spectate let alone shoot.  The last few years or should I say the first 3 years of me watching / shooting this event, I have been more of a spectator than a photographer.  You could also say I got a bit lazy and just wanted to enjoy the weekend.  This year I wanted to focus more on the photography and try to enjoy it as much, and I’m glad I went that direction.  I think I enjoyed it more watching the race unfold through my finder rather than watching and capturing snap shots casually with whatever camera I happen to have available.

ParaPanAm Games: Women’s Wheelchair Basketball

A little more than 2 weeks ago, I had put up a quick pic that I took before the ParaPanAm Women’s Wheelchair Basketball Gold Medal Game – The USA vs. Canada.  Sorry these pics are a little late.

And the gold medal game begins...

Game Time Inside the Rogers Centre

Alvin’s Film Follies (Part XII – A Visit To Toronto’s Rogers Centre)

I recently was invited to attend an event at the Rogers Centre which included watching the Toronto Blue Jays (as you may have seen in my Snappy Friday teaser).  It was a great day to be out and enjoy a ball game too, although the skies were much more impressive the day before.  In the past few weeks, I have come to the conclusion that there is something wrong with Penny, so I borrowed my son’s camera (a Pentax ME Super) to see what sort of photos I would get on this day.  Let’s just say, paired with my fisheye lens and a cheap 80-200 telephoto, I was left pretty impressed.  Enjoy the pics I have posted, within.

Snappy Fridays – Getting Into PanAm Mode Yet?

The PanAm Torch Relay Passing my office tower

The PanAm Torch Relay Passing my office tower

This passed by my office tower not too long ago.  Sorry for the terrible digital zoom and small resolution too…but hey, this was the best “snap” shot I was going to get from up on the 17th floor!  😛  XP  XD

Who deserves more credit?

I, since the planting of basketball into my brain, have been a Miami Heat fan.

I stand by my mindset that if the Heat don’t make it farther into the playoffs, I will only root for the east team so long as they are not the Knicks, which is a surprise, because I was

  • a) Named after Patrick Ewing (with some underlying reasons as to why my name is Patrick as well, but you know, I’m not my parents, so I don’t know the whole story, nor will I ever, because it changes every so often when my mom tells me)
  • b) born and raised in Queens, NYC, New York.
