Reflecting Irish

"KeiVarae Russell #6 of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and teammates walk to the field for warmups before playing the Virginia Cavaliers at Scott Stadium on September 12, 2015 in Charlottesville, Virginia."

It had been a long time since I've been to the University of Virginia in Charlottesville - and getting back down south was nostalgic.

With college football now in full swing, covering top 20 teams is important. So when the visiting Notre Dame Fighting Irish were playing the Virginia Cavaliers, I found myself making the pilgrimage to Scott Stadium.

I had a lot of ideas I wanted to try, yet kept thinking of a visit I made as an intern many, many years before. I was green at the time and didn't really have a clue what I was doing, but captured an action shot that is still in my sports book today.

This trip, before the game started, I ventured around looking for something fresh. A gimmick, I found a puddle and waited for the Fighting Irish to exit the locker room. It happened fast, and worked - well enough that I went back for another attempt before the game.

Unfortunately, the second shot at bettering the frame was a disappointment, as there were many more players, and the reflection was lost when they stepped onto the water.

Glad the frame worked the first time, but always a thought in my mind for next time I return.
