KSU vs. UCF Football

It is starting to seem as though my blog is turning into a sports photo blog. That is not my intention and I will try harder to post other photographs I take. With that being said, K-State played the University of Central Florida yesterday at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. What a WILD day! There was an overcast for most of the morning and leading up to kickoff. Roughly two and a half minutes into the first quarter, the game was suspended due to lightning. Fans were directed to leave their seats and take shelter. Dark clouds hovered over the stadium and were moving and spinning so fast, it was as though we were watching a video that had been put on fast forward. Soon after the initial suspension, a heavy rain commenced. After a 90-minute delay, the game finally continued. And in true Kansas fashion, the sun was shining and sweat was beading off of peoples' faces by the end of the game. It ended up being an exciting game with the Wildcats scoring late to move to 4-0 on the season.

Some fans waited to watch the storm come in from the upper deck.
It was Military Day and Family Day. Machine guns and canons were fired as the Wildcats took the field.

On Saturday, I had the opportunity to drive to Kansas City and cover the Kansas State vs. Iowa St. football game at Arrowhead Stadium. This is the second year in a row the two teams have played at Arrowhead Stadium.  The game is nicknamed "Farmageddon" because of the high popularity of agriculture at both universities. This is the last year this game will be played at Arrowhead Stadium. I could not allow myself to pass up the opportunity to cover this game (I am the biggest Chiefs fan you will ever meet). It was extremely hot on the field and the stadium was probably only half filled with fans, if that. Nonetheless, it was a fun day of shooting and a day I will always remember. Kansas State won the game, 27-20.

Band Day and Fireworks

Yesterday, K-State hosted Missouri State for the second football game of the season. It was a pretty easy 48-24 Wildcat victory. It was also "Band Day." Several schools from around the state of Kansas had members of their bands perform alongside the K-State band during halftime. After the game, there was a fireworks show. Below are two photographs, one of halftime and one of the fireworks show.

Yesterday, I was sent to City Hall to cover protesting of a proposed city ordinance. To read more about the ordinance, click here.

A group from Westboro Baptist Church, who is led by Fred Phelps, came to protest against the ordinance. A group of over one hundred in favor of the ordinance also gathered at City Hall. About one hundred yards separated the two groups.

The following images are from the protest.

More than 100 people showed up in support of the city's proposed ordinance for sexual orientation equality.

KSU vs. UCLA Football

Yesterday I photographed the KSU vs. UCLA football game at Bill Snyder Family Stadium here in Manhattan. The crowd was incredible, over 51,000 fans filled the stadium and set the school record for attendance on a home opener. It was a really fantastic game that ended with K-State walking away with a 31-22 victory.

It was Harley-Davidson Day

Daniel Thomas rushed 28 times for a career-high 234 yards.
