Last Sunday, I tagged along with a reporter as she visited various proposed Olympic venue sites in Chicago.
The writer was asking weekend warriors who use the parks what they thought of the possibility of the Games coming to Chicago and how they would feel if their fields and harbors were closed for years to prepare for the competition.
My favorite part by far was the hour or so we spent hanging with the Pirates of the Zapata Baseball League in Washington Park.
I shot exclusively with a 50mm lens wide open and was really enjoying shooting portraits of the players and atmosphere.
When I saw Deonte Reynolds, I couldn’t ask him quick enough if I could take his portrait.
I definitely plan on spending some more Sundays with the team.
