It’s Been A While

Wow…It’s been almost 5 months since my last post.

While I can’t say that my only reason for not posting is being busy, it has been a big part. During my summer, I worked a lot and at one point was working over 40 hours a week (which was new to me). It was a rewarding experience.

Since my last post, not only have I started a new semester, but just under two weeks ago I proposed to my beautiful girlfriend, Ashley, in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and she said yes!

Here are some pictures to recap what has gone on since my last appearance in the blogosphere.

iPhone Photo of the Week (Week 7)

This past week has been a little crazy for me. Today is the last day of class and I worked a game for the last time this semester on Sunday. Friday (4/25) greeted us with rain, but the rain subsided in time for the 7pm baseball game. Because of the clouds, I knew there would be a good opportunity for a picture during the game so I patiently waited by the patio at the stadium waiting for the opportunity to arrive.  Continue reading iPhone Photo of the Week (Week 7)

Lynchburg Sunsets

Lynchburg, Virginia is the home of my college, Liberty University, as well as home to the most stunning sunsets I have ever seen in my life. A combination of the mountains (or hills as people in the Rockies would probably claim) and the cloud conditions make for some of the most colorful sunsets imaginable. One of those such sunsets occurred during Liberty University’s baseball game against Virginia Military Institute.

Here is the first pano that I captured when I first noticed the sunset…

My Job (Baseball)

Today was the home opener for Liberty University Baseball. This is only the second season that the Flames baseball team has played in their new baseball stadium and today was the first time playing a home opener after the stadium was fully completed. Although the Flames fell to Old Dominion University 7-4, it was exciting to be back into baseball.

Before today’s game could be played, countless hours were put in by some of my coworkers and Grounds crews clearing the stadium and field of snow that fell on Thursday and Friday (To see this progress, check out the Athletic Director’s Instagram). They did an amazing job getting the field ready for today’s game. Baseball is actually a relatively easy sport for the Athletic Facilities department. All we need to do for these games is put out some white rocking chairs, put umbrellas up on patio tables. Also, we clean up the stands of trash post-game and periodically use leaf blowers to get rid of the hundreds of sunflower seeds that are eaten during games. Here are just a few pictures I snapped during today’s game.

And here is a look at what the Jerry Falwell Library looked like in the snowfall back on Saturday.

The Jerry Falwell Library is pictured covered in snow after two days of snowfall that accumulated 10 inches on Liberty's campus.
