  I am excited beyond excited!!! When I got the call from Rob Jones last night that the profits from our t-shirt sales from my Worldwide Photo Walk broke our all-time record and that we had raised $12,000 for the Springs of Hope Orphanage, I about fell out of my chair! But there's a little more to the story than just that.

I finally got a chance to process some of my images from last week's game between the San Francisco, 49ers and the New York Giants. Anyway, I thought I share a few of my favorites from the shoot below (click on them for much larger views): Above: I dig the sweat flying and the fact that the defender's helmet is up so high his chin guard looks like it's covering his eyes.  I had dinner a few days before the game with sports photography legend Dave Black and his lovely wife Susan. During dinner I mentioned to Dave that I'd be shooting the game this weekend, and Dave said: "Here's what you need to do: put a 1.4 tele-extender on your 400mm f/2.8 and get a super tight shot of Eli Manning---so tight that you cut off the top of his helmet and part of the…
