Some mid-day camera testing with the new Nikon D90. Loving the results thus far. It really is the little brother to the D300 and its calling my name. I think Nikon is going to make a mint on me this year...

Colts-Ravens Game 10-12-2008

I received a very generous gift of two free Colts tickets from a good friend's parents. Chuck hadn't been to the brand new Lucas Oil Stadium yet, so i asked if he would like to join me. What a game! The first Win in the new stadium was accompanied by a stunning display of potential from a previously lackluster team. Final score = 31-3.

I shot a new panoramic image inside to match this shot of the RCA (Hoosier) Dome from a few years back.

Will upload the new panoramic as soon as i remember to bring it home from work... yeah.

Here are a few other shots to tide you over in the mean time.

Nick and Sarah across the stadium. Section 111 - Row 1 - Seats 1 and 2.

A nice view from the top courtesy of the Metlife blimp. Take notice of the size difference between the old RCA dome (white building with roof caved in) and Lucas Oil stadium.

Great catch from Marvin, his 2nd touchdown of the game.

Yeah, it was that close...

"What? Oh, i am supposed to keep the helmet on my head while on the field."

Pumpkin Head: A day in the life...

Karen takes a picture of John takes a picture of Karen...

A keen observer, Chuck surveys the patch. 1 pumpkin plus 2 pumpkins = 3 pumpkins. Even on the weekends, he is creating new lesson plans.

Oh, the humanity!!! So many pumpkins are about to meet the blade. The stress was just to much for Michelle.

Unfortunately, Andrea, Pete and the kids couldn't make it for the day's events. Even so, we had a great day/evening and i am looking forward to next year.

Halloween is only a week and half away!
