Ravens Return Home

"Linebacker Ray Lewis #52 of the Baltimore Ravens kisses the Vince Lombardi Trophy as he and teammates celebrate during their Super Bowl XLVII victory parade near M&T Bank Stadium on February 5, 2013 in Baltimore, Maryland."

Two days following Super Bowl XLVII, I once again had the opportunity to document the city of Baltimore for Getty Images as the Baltimore Ravens celebrated their victory parade.

Paired up with a friend and Getty teammate, we split what we thought the most important parts of the parade would be. It's always a risk going into unknown situations, but we ended up with a great take and planned the route perfectly.

My role was to cover the parade downtown from and overpass and then do my best to get back to the stadium.

I was fortunate to be able to sprint around the block away from the crowds to catch up to the caravan of players as they entered near the pair of stadiums. This very brief moment of quietness, in what was nothing short of chaos as 200,000-plus screaming fans chased the players around, ended up being my favorite moment of the day.

As an athlete, I don't think there could be a greater feeling than knowing you've gone out on top before retiring - it was a good day for Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens.
