Today is Peter’s birthday.  United were playing Stoke, so while Cris went to the Capitol for the march, he and I went to The Lucky Bar to watch the match.  I took this photo in added time, about a minute before Rooney equalized.  It was a great goal and the bar went wild.  So nice to watch football with him on his birthday.  Cris is on her way back to his flat, then out to dinner tonight.

Happy birthday, Laddie.

UMASS Women’s Soccer

Posted in football, penalty kicks, soccer, sports by joncrispin on 06/10/2015

I sometimes cover for my friend Thom Kendall who is the UMASS sports photographer.  He had two simultaneous events this afternoon, so he asked me to shoot the women’s soccer team photographs.  I know the wide angle kind of distorts the distance, but the ball is on the spot for a penalty kick.  After I took the photograph, I attempted the PK.  A total miss, but they were great sports.  But hey, with 26 goalies, who could score?

I feel so fortunate that my life as a photographer allows me to connect with such diverse organizations and people. There was so much life in these young women, and it was such a beautiful day.  It made me really happy to lark about with them before they got down to the hard work of practice and being students.
