On One Knee
As much as games stay the same, there is always something that makes each one different.
Week fifteen had come to an end in Baltimore, and when time expired, the Baltimore Ravens came out victorious over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Paired up with a teammate with Getty Images, we had small game plan for the post game scrum. It was a typical post game with lots of players congregating on the field.
When I started to make my way off the field, I saw Steve Smith Sr., of the Baltimore Ravens remove his helmet. I instantly noticed a large cross with wings on the back of his neck.
Having photographed the combined team prayer time and time again, I had never noticed Smith's tattoo.
It was rare moment where I pictured an image in my head that then unfolded in front of my lens. It made for different picture of a routine image.
I'll certainly revisit this image next time I document a Ravens game.
