After three weeks off from shooting football, I was anxious to get back on the field Sunday.
After a lot of recent criticism about “barely” winning games, the Ravens were anxious to prove their critics wrong. They did…in a big way.
They scored more points than any other team in Ravens history.
As a team photographer I feel an immense amount of pressure and gratitude to have the incredible opportunity to document this team’s history and games like this make it extra special.
Well, the Ravens easily avoided what surely would have been incredibly embarrassing headlines had they not defeated the winless Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
The Ravens had a great game…as for myself…not so much.
Sure, I made some images I am happy with. However, I had one of those games where you just feel like all the big plays don’t come your way.
But hey…I’m not going to sit here and cry about it. I love my job, and with the way these guys are playing, I’ll have a few more games to make up for it.
I hope you enjoy the images.
If you follow the Ravens or the 49ers, then last week you were undoubtedly bombarded by headlines like “Harbowl”, “Epic Sibling Rivalry” or “Brothers Duel.” You may have thought there was going to be a prize fight between John and Jim Harbaugh in Baltimore on Thursday night.
However, despite what the media circus might have wanted you to believe, two teams had to suit up and actually play a football game. With a dominating performance from the defense and some clutch plays from the offense, the Ravens had a lot to be thankful for.
Because I was working, my family postponed Thanksgiving dinner. Although I didn’t have any turkey on Thursday, I’d say a big fat win was the next best thing.
