so back on June 8th my good buddy Andre' (from way back, like kindergarten way back) came down to Houston to snap a few in-game pictures of me as practice for his burgeoning professional photography career. here's his website:
lots of good shots there, some of the Dallas Stars in the sports section (even some rugby, sweet!)
Andre was quick on the subsequent developing and touch-up of my action shots but, as per usual, i have been slower than lazy dirt in actually posting them to this site. allow me to remedy that at this time.
Setting up for the faceoff:
The ready stance:
Solid form on a left toe save:
Frozen in mid-save, going to cover the low areas through a screen:
Covering the left side, vigilant, like a hawk:
Kick save, and a beaut':
Eye of the tiger:
The goalie moonwalk:
Fighting through another screen:
The goalie and the out-of-focus enemy butt:
Believe it or not, this was a save, not a goal:
Some of that old-school stand-up style:
well there you go, pictures of me covered in all sorts of bulky equipment. just what the public was clamoring for.
many thanks to Andre for taking the time and effort to get such great action shots. i'm glad i'll have some evidence to show my kids that their dad was crazy enough at one point in his life to put himself directly into the path of a hard projectile traveling at high speeds.
