I took this during an engagement photo shoot for Amanda’s cousin, Caleb. See a few more, including a shot of a bubble inside a bubble here.
I shot my third UK game of the year for the Advocate-Messenger today at noon. It was a great game from start to finish, with both teams playing their hardest and best the whole way. With its 83-74 win over Vandy, UK clinched yet another SEC regular-season championship and extended its home-game winning streak to 51.
Sunday morning, Amanda and I headed out to the Central Kentucky Wildlife Refuge in Boyle County to count birds and participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count. When we first settled in at the bird blind, we didn’t see any birds for about 20 minutes, but then they started mobbing the feeders outside the blind and we got all kinds of great photos.

On the eve of Thanksgiving, I shot the Kentucky vs. Radford basketball game for the Advocate-Messenger. The game was a slaughter — UK won 88-40. The first half was more fun to shoot because by the second half UK was so far out ahead that the game was already decided and no one seemed to be pushing very hard to score.
I get to serve as the Advocate-Messenger’s back-up photographer for UK games this season, which is an awesome job. I’ve been a Kentucky basketball fan since I was 5 years old and my pastor gave me a UK sweatshirt, so this was somewhat dreamlike for me. It had been several years since I shot a basketball game but I shook the rust off enough to get some decent shots. UK won 108-58.
