Recent Events Captured.....

 

   A beautiful Saturday morning in Tremont, Illinois was the setting for likely the two best teams and two best pitchers in the State of Illinois. The Regionals are a bit early in the Post Season for the meeting of two such elite teams as these two but sometimes it just works out that way, and it was time for the first pitch of the Championship game. I was there to capture the action and those game photos are now edited and uploaded into the gallery and the direct link is below.....

Lady Turks Vs Brimfield Softball Regional 5-23-2015

  Tremont's popular Head Coach of the Lady Turks Softball Team, Skip Penning congratulates his team after a solid victory over Farmington on Tuesday in the opening game of their Regional Playoff's. As Skip would share with the crowd a bit later in their rain delayed Senior Night, that just the night before this team had clinched their 4th consecutive Conference Championship. The team has not lost one single conference game since 2011, quite a streak for anyone. The team will lose 7 very talented and dedicated players this year but Skip will remain to begin building yet another great group. I have the game photos edited and posted for everyone to view or to fill your scrapbooks with,  follow the direct link to the game gallery....

 Thursday was time to take a run to Mason City with the windshield wipers going full blast, only to get to Rt. 29 and notice there wasn't a drop on my windshield...so it was to the softball field for a game with the Lady Cougars. Well, it was a wet practice/warm up and time for the officials to show up and it seems that they were a bit less interested in playing in the rain than the girls were so without a single pitch being made, the game was called....hey it got me out of the house for a couple hours and I got some good warm up pics so I'll just share those with you with this link to my website and the direct link to the gallery....

I hurried back from a dr's appointment in Springfield and arrived just in time for the Senior Night festivities and the last home game of the year against Hartem. I have the game photos edited and posted for your viewing pleasure or to order your prints for those great scrapbooks....just follow the direct gallery link below for all the photos:

   Most people know that when you are looking for a great girls softball team you also have to look for Skip Penning, he's without a doubt one of the very best and if you have any doubts, just ask any of his amazing players on the Tremont Lady Turks team. Another amazing group of very talented young ladies with every desire to win...keep your eyes on them in the upcoming post season. As of earlier today the Lady Turks were rated 3rd in the State, so they will be making some noise in the Post Season again this year.... I was in Glassford on Wednesday, the 6th as Tremont traveled there to play Illini Bluffs and i just happen to have a few game photos, and you can go take a look at the direct link below....

 With my abbreviated softball season this year, Tuesday was the first time this year that I was able to shoot both the Varsity and JV games as the Lady Ducks were hosting the Midwest Central Lady Raiders. With a great deal of images to edit, I want to apologize for the delay in getting all of both games game photos processed and uploaded, but they are finished now and ready for you to view and order your favorites... just go to the direct gallery link below:

   I love my job...it's been 60 years since my first photograph was published...it has taken me most everywhere you can imagine, but it's working with talented young people that has to be my favorite. They are always filled with surprises and challenges. There are so many amazing kids out there that deserve some rewards and recognition for their talents, efforts, and hard work.

   Yes, I'm on Facebook as many of you know I post links to all the game and event photos there and here on this website and love to meet new people and make new friends...so with that said, we are going to get this new year and new project underway as soon as possible. I am not here just to go to the games and shoot pics hoping you will purchase some prints but I also provide the school with any images they might need along the way and I support the teams, school, programs, and other things as much as I possibly can. I am a big believer in paying it back, paying it forward, or simply doing everything I can to help out.

    Those of us who are fortunate enough to call this man our friend, we just call him JVee. He also responds to Jim, and he is one of the few remaining Certified Chief Master Printers still practicing his craft here in the US. His accomplishments and credits are far to many for me to even mention a few, let's just say rather that one of his former regular tasks was to make the remarkable photographic prints for none other than Ansil Adams, and that alone is good enough for me....any time I have something special that can be generated in a product seldom seen any more, it goes to JVee. His incredible knowledge and expertise of an old world craftsman nothing can compare with one of Jim's amazingly beautiful Giclée prints. Like Jim, I'm old school and i believe that nothing can replace quality and I am proud to say that I am fortunate enough to have the very best working on and creating my prints.....proud of these finished products, extremely so and it is an honor to sign one of these prints when they are delivered to my customers.
