High School Hoops

I haven't been shooting much basketball this year which is rare for me. I did get to shoot a game last night: Muncie Central vs Pike High School. Muncie beat Pike who is ranked in the top ten in the state and has one of the best players in the country Marquis Teague.

Duck Hunt

I was sitting around the office yesterday trying to come up with something good to shoot when I saw a Facebook post saying there was a goose hunt at Prairie Creek Reservoir here in Muncie. I couldn't resist, despite the 9 degree temperature. After hunting for the hunters I found them and they were kind enough to let me shoot some pictures as they packed up for the day.
