Another key speaker was Ehud Barak, the former Prime Minister of Israel and the most highly decorated soldier in their history.

SUNSET NEWCOMERS TRACK MEET http://www.axionshotz.net/blog/2015/3/sunset-newcomers-track-meet Today was the official start of the track and field season with the newcomers meet at Arbor View.  One of the challenges of the sprints is to very quickly determine who is in the lead, focus on them and get a few pictures.  I did miss a few.  Enjoy a few that I did get.

A photo finish in this one

FLAG FOOTBALL http://www.axionshotz.net/blog/2015/1/flag-football I went out and covered some flag football for the NYS at Frias Park.  I ran into a few customers that have their athletes from the tackle leagues playing flag football in the spring.  Flag football is really fun.....I played a few years myself.  Enjoy a few pictures of the action.

BULLDOG GRAPPLER http://www.axionshotz.net/blog/2015/1/bulldog-grappler Getting 2015 started off right with some wresting.  I wanted to shoot some wrestling this.  I plan to show up at a couple more duel meets in the next couple of weeks.  I covered the BULLDOG GRAPPLER wrestling tournament this weekend at Centennial High.  I watched some really tough matches.......a small mistake in wresting can get you pinned.  I shot quite a few prelim matches and all of the finals.  

Enjoy a few:

Anyway enjoy a couple of shots from the day.

SOCCER IN HENDERSON http://www.axionshotz.net/blog/2014/7/soccer-in-henderson I took a trip out to Henderson today for some soccer.  Sometimes with these little 6 to 8 year olds you can pick out a few that have some talent and that makes it fun to watch and photograph.  On another note it is also nice to photograph at the parks in Henderson.  They take good care of their parks and it makes my pictures look better.  Enjoy a few from today.

SUMMER SPORTS http://www.axionshotz.net/blog/2014/7/summer-sports I have been off doing some other things for awhile now.  This week I broke out the camera grabbed some sunscreen and cold water and shot some soccer.  The NYS has a summer league going on right now.  There was also some baseball going on nearby....have to get over there on another day.   Wasn't too hard to get into a groove and get some great pictures for the parents.

MIXED SPORTS DAY http://www.axionshotz.net/blog/2014/5/mixed-sports-day Wow.........it was hot out there on Saturday.  I was doing some team pictures and my flash overheated, that was the first time that ever happened. I just moved the kids around for some different light and kept shooting.  Got some great shots of the kids.  I went ahead and shot their game as well right after that.  A few weeks ago I was shooting a Ravens game for NYS and the Ravens also have teams in the NYFL.  One of the parents wanted pictures of their other athlete as well.  This was the first time I have been to All American Park since they put the new turf down.   That's where the heat was at.....that 100 degrees was even hotter coming off that turf. All the teams did a great job keeping the kids cool and hydrated during the game.

SATURDAY LACROSSE http://www.axionshotz.net/blog/2014/3/saturday-lacrosse I had a change of pace today, instead of covering football I shot some lacrosse over at the Viper Fields.  The Rough Riders played the Wranglers in two different divisions. Then there was High School game that featured Liberty against a real good Sky View team from Utah.

NYS FOOTBALL WEEK 2 http://www.axionshotz.net/blog/2014/3/nys-football-week-2 What a great day for some football......the weather was beautiful.  I covered some games between the LV Cowboys and Panthers in three divisions at Legacy HS.  The school has taken good care of their field this year it was in great shape and looked good.  Great weather and great games.

LACROSSE THURSDAY http://www.axionshotz.net/blog/2014/3/lacrosse-thursday I covered some Lacrosse again......starting to get the hang of this game now.  I was on the team side of the field and found that they have a penalty box kind of like in hockey.  There was an illegal hit or contact and the guy had to spend 2 minutes in the penalty area.  Anyway, enjoys a few pictures from the game.  These were from the middle school division.

NYS SPRING OPENING DAY http://www.axionshotz.net/blog/2014/3/nys-spring-opening-day Since it was opening day I decided to head on over the Ed Fountain Park.  I covered a few games, mostly matchups between the Ducks and Green Machine.  However there was a new team in the league that looked pretty good, the Ravens.  Ravens had some nice uniforms as well.  As usual I got a chance to meet some real nice people out there enjoying some football.  Anyway, enjoy a few pictures.
