Football is back, and yes this makes me happy. I love both types of football American and "Real." I'm glad that my slow period is coming to an end. I hope to be photographing a lot of sports this fall, might even get a new lens to help with the load if I can make enough money. I'm not sure what September has in store for me but I'm am sure it's going to be fun.
