The Coming Storm

Two storms,actually. And two images.

The first was the storm of pucks that Boston put on Ottawa. The final score was Bruins: 6; Senators: 0.

It was a fun night at the Boston Garden … A lot of scoring by the right team and a couple of fights, eh?

But in the back of my mind was the fact that the second storm of the night, a “nor ‘easter” was supposed to roll in blanketing our corner of the world with a couple of feet of snow. Given the history of meteorological accuracy, I was afraid the storm would start long before the “sometime after midnight” the weather psychics predicted.

I was thrilled to exit the Garden and be greeted by dry roads.

I almost always bring my camera to sporting events now. Years ago, cameras were prohibited. Today the fine print on tickets excludes cameras with interchangeable lenses. But I discovered if you bring the camera, one lens, no bag, there are no questions.

So last night it was fisheye fun at The Garden. Inside and out.

  1. Combining two of my favorite things: hockey and photography! Great stuff, Bob. I got a DSLR with a 70-150 lens attached into the Honda Center in Anaheim last year. They said nothing longer than 7″ and I had the lens pulled all the way back so no issues. Great stuff.

  2. I think I know where that image was taken from. Good thing you had your fisheye. Last time I was at that location, I couldn’t fit my lens between the vertical rail on the fence! Great capture!

  3. Great minds think alike, Bob. As the person who convinced me that a fisheye is an essential piece of kit, I bow to your superior stadium shot from this week 🙂
