Good to see you again

Sporting a new photographic necklace (thanks to this adventure with sdsportscene.com) recent trips to local and area gymnasiums has renewed my spirit if you will with all the “Good to see you” greetings I have received.

Believe me, these days being seen has a new meaning knowing the impact of the pandemic on our world. 

All through my career I have faced new challenges and speed bumps at times. Seems only yesterday I was in the closet of a film darkroom groping for the tanks, reels and chemicals needed to process rolls of film from a basketball game as quickly as I could in order to meet a 10 p.m. deadline. 

The tools of the trade have changed by leaps and bounds to make processing an image easier but it is still a challenge to meet that deadline, especially since I am not getting any younger!

Now I find myself hunched over a laptop trying to keep up with the ever increasing number of games out there to cover. With the calendar page turning to March, the workload will increase for a brief flurry before activities move outdoors later in the month, weather permitting.

In the meantime I must say again it is good to see all of you sports fans too. I will do my best to stop and say hello when I see you. Just understand I might be on the run when you see me as Dave and I are going to do our best to get to as many events as logistically possible in the days and weeks ahead.
