Virginia Tech Hokies vs. ODU Monarchs: a View from the Sideline

New, 2 comments

It was a bright sunny day in Blacksburg. There were lots of fluffy clouds to block the harsh feel of the direct sunlight, and a nice breeze stirring up the air. Lane Stadium was slow to fill, and just barely passed 57K fans. It was a good day, though. A win is always good.

Here are some pictures of the game on Saturday. It was a challenge since I was using a lens combination that allowed me to get better close up shots, but the telephoto part didn’t work as well as had been hoped. Add to that I left my longer telephoto lens back home warming a spot in my office, instead of in my photography backpack.

Let’s take a look at some of the action this weekend, including one of the best sequences that I had for the three seasons and a game as a photographer.

So, that’s a big bunch of the best of them. The entire ready set will be uploaded to the Facebook page during the week, and you’ll see more as we get to editing them over time.

This was a great day for the fans. It was a solid turn around after a shaky start at BC. There are things to work on, but there are stars beginning to shine brightly. Instead of grousing about it, let’s take this ride as it happens and enjoy it together.

Next week we host Furman, and GC will be back on the sidelines.

GO HOKIES!!!
