Patriotic Eagle

"Safety Colt Anderson #30 of the Philadelphia Eagles puts on his helmet before playing the San Diego Chargers at Lincoln Financial Field on September 15, 2013 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The San Diego Chargers won, 33-30."

Images always don't come easy for photographers.

Shooting the San Diego Chargers play the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field didn't start off to well.

During the team introductions fireworks, smoke and music set the mood. It's quite the production and always makes a nice image that can later be used for upcoming stories.

However, my camera's auto-focus decided to die as the Eagles took the field. So after a couple of frames I realized that and had nothing to show from the intro.

But I had just enough time to switch cameras, lenses to document some players with an enormous American flag. While I had some more images of players holding the flag with military personnel, it was this brief second of mental preparation and readying for the game that I kept coming back to. 

More from the game to come.
