All Over The Place

There has been quite the hiatus with posts on this blog. I hope this next series of things doesn't disappoint. The next few sets of photos are from all around Minnesota (and Ohio) and illustrate many different things going on around the state (and then football shots of course).
This series is from Jensen Air Field which is a small grass airstrip in Rosemount, MN. The tight community of pilots has been there since the 80's.
There are only a few shots from Minnesota Roller Girls practice. However much more from around the state after the "read more..."
Roller girls heading around the corner. They are a lot more intense in a game setting;
Stella the puppy at the airfield;
Airfield hanger;
Arnie Jensen, left, founded the airfield with the father of Clay Adam, right;
The next week I traveled to the Iron range with reporter Jesse VanBerkel to learn more about a study by the U on miners and repertory cancer. I found out the hard way by homeland security you're not allowed to take pictures of active mines.
This is a panoramic of Leonidas (an inactive mine);
Retired miners Roger Holmstrom, right, and Dave Trach as they leave the Steelworkers Union in Eveleth, MN;
They worked for several mines across the Iron Range;
Eveleth had some awesome/random locations, Jesse made a good last minuet model;
Eveleth just looks old;
Excited about the worlds largest hockey stick;
Random pile of appliances;
Then it was off to Columbus Ohio this weekend for the Ohio State vs. Minnesota Game for the Daily. It was a crazy game atmosphere that just narrowly tops the TCF Stadium opening.
100,000+ intense fans;
Eric Deker and team take the field. Deker was injured in the first quarter;
Freshman quarterback MarQueis Gray had his first ever pass completion;
Brandon Saine of Ohio State being tackled by Simoni Lawrence;
DeVier Posey (8) and Terrelle Pryor celebrate a 62-yard touchdown pass;
DeVeir Posey catches a 57-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter;
Brutus waving his flag;
Gophers Lee Campbell takels Jordan Hall;
Eric Decker looks up at the scoreboard after coming out on crutches in the second half;
It is now known that Decker's injury is season ending. This will be my last shot of him for a while I guess;
Hope you enjoyed. Apologies for taking so long.

Album & All-Access

Been quite busy with school and all the other fun stuff besides going out and doing my own photos. That's all changing this month. For this post...
More Football (now in B&W!) from the 31 to 28 lost to the Badgers;
Pictures from this summer finally used in BK-One and Benzilla's Radio Do Canibal;
More after the jump.

BK-One & Benzilla hit the streets;
Ben in Hideaway Studios;
Brendan in Hideaway Studios;
With my football gig I have all-access;
Pre-game is surprisingly quiet till Brew shows up;
Pacing in the biggest locker room;
Game Time;
No pass interference called;
DeLeon Eskridge rushed for 60 yards;
Troy Stoudemire flying over Badgers
Eskridge trying to break free;
John Clay rushed for 184 yards and 3 TD's;
Marcus Sherels on his 88 yard fumble recovery for a TD;
Deker had 140 yards receiving and 1 TD;
Second to last completion;
Last completed pass;
The game was exciting to the bitter fumbled end. Dissapointing to not see the Gophers win, but it was a great game to watch down to the last few seconds.
