As usual, the teenager refused to smile – but I think he had fun anyway.
A week ago, my family and I journeyed down to Lincoln to watch our niece play in a volleyball tournament. While there, we also took in a Husker baseball game. Sunday’s game (the final in the 3 game series) was cold and rainy but a great matchup between two good teams. Unfortunately, the Huskers came up short 5-2 in 10 innings.
Below are some of my pictures from the afternoon’s action. It was fun playing with my new camera (Nikon d810), but I can tell I have a ways to go before becoming a competent sports photographer.
