Grove City HS beat Pittsburgh Carrick HS 34-12 but it was a good game. The Pittsburgh Carrick team is under new leadership and the whole effort and spirit is respectable and positive. Last year the score for the same first non-conference game was Grove City 40 and Carrick 0. This year it was a real game and Carrick scored first and last. Nice job, guys, coaches.
Several of my photography students are on the team and some of the students I’ve met in another capacity. The Spanish teacher and his three teenage kids were in attendance as well and we were happy to be there.
It was about 65 miles north of the city and I was glad Steve went with me, especially for the long, dark ride back home. The gentleman in the concession stand was giving away the leftover hot dogs after the game and wouldn’t take any $. Nice hosts!

Vertical horizontal vertical horizontal Sorry I could not get them into two columns to compare the two shots.
One shot, two ways. I didn’t realize I do this challenge without thinking about doing it. The WordPress post said shoot a vertical and a horizontal. And although I did not go out and reshoot for this challenge, here is what I discovered on Tuesday night I shot vertical, horizontal naturally without too much thought. Shoot, turn the camera,shoot, turn the camera, Shoot and turn the camera – shoot. I was surprised how many times I did this exact thing without knowing about the challenge that came out today.
On the way back home, after a weekend with the family, I drove by the night game.
We’re not talking about who won. It’s been a rough season. Not looking so good.
I didn’t post it on the Monday after due to the disappointing outcome for the Steelers. But I like the scene. And it was exciting to hear the roar of the crowd.
Shot with a 50mm lens, ISO 200, f/1.8 and a slow shutter 40- propped on the rolled down driver’s window- without a remote cable release but managed without camera shake. Canon 5D Mark ll
and the row of houses on the road above the stadium intrigued me. It was homecoming. This is the other side in the stands- Perry HS.
The view from the home side is so different. No city skyline and the church with the gold dome. A totally different view.
A lovely night weather-wise and 12 points on the scoreboard but not enough to win.
Today I wore blue and gold for school spirit and I won the faculty raffle for being dressed in school colors.
I won a navy fleece on Thursday -with the school insignia. I took it to the game tonight but no chill so lugged it around instead of getting to wear it. Morning is going to come early tomorrow. Night now.
On the way home on Carson Street
It was a beautiful night, capturing the sunlight as the sun went down. And it ended up being an exciting game with a win by the Pirates. A few fireworks. Perfect weather. They close the Roberto Clemente Bridge for pedestrians to walk across to the Park. Reggie Howze is the saxophonist standing on the bridge.
