Photos from Michigan vs. Northwestern

Here are some photos from the game. I was disappointed that I didn't get a better shot of the Roundtree catch. I happened to be looking through my 400mm lens at the time. The play ended up happening in front of me and what you see here is the only part of the play that ended up in the frame.

EDIT: Hey Eric, can you ask Brian to find out who the turd was that down voted this post to you as trolling when I was giving you props for your photos? It's obviously a tool bag that needs a banning.

I find it funny that people like that exist. Anyway, looking forward to seeing you this weekend. Be sure to stop by for some grub afterward, or before. We are arriving earlier and staying later than normal since its senior day, and I need to cry about no more tailgating this year. Have a good week.

To me at least, this picture set stands out amongst all the games you've taken.  The shadows in the pictures at the beginning really make the images pop, and you seem to have captured the perfect action moments as well. Great job, I love that we have a photographer now to share hi-res images!

You took several amazing pictures in your photo album.  The one about half way though, (2392 according to the Flickr website) with Toussaint emerging between two wildcats is SI cover worthy.  I would love to have that as I computer wallpaper.

Thanks for sharing these excellent photos.

There is one of Hoke at 3731 where he is talking to someone and you can see the letters from the endzone in his sunglasses.  Way cool.  You should send it over to him.

Also, I happen to love the Roundtree catch photo.  You can see how he is clutching the ball while looking down at the ground and defender he is falling toward.  The shot shows how close those fingers are to slipping off the ball and that, at this crucial moment, he can't even look at the ball.  Yes, there is other stuff going on, but we all known what happened and who was where.  The shot gives an unusual and dramatic view that tells the story in an interesting way.  I think it is a great photo and I was surprised that you were disappointed by it.
