Default Watching Wimbledon

Is it a little weird that while watching the tennis at Wimbledon on TV I get equally excited about the lovely long lenses that the photogs have as I do for the tennis???

Also, it really would be great to photograph from the press areas..... oh well, it's nice to dream!

Mark,
I know what you mean. Since I've just started getting interested and "invested" in this photo stuff I found myself noticing and watching the lenses that the guys and girls had on the baselines during the ACC and NCAA tournaments this spring (Go Heels!). Funny thing is, I actually used the DVR to back up the picture several times just to get a better look. My wife thought I had gone nuts!

Hi Mark, thank god I'm not the only gear freak . Given the huge praise heaped on the nikon D3 etc recently, I'm suprised at the abundance of canon glass still out there. Kind regards Graham.

Now I think that is going a little too far LOL.

Do you think that we should start a support group????? Any suggestions for the group name?

Default On the side lines...

Hey Griffin.....
Some time before or during the football season, don't know exactly when, Carolina does a bidding fund raiser auction for a spot on the field with all the photog's...If you would be interested in that...They might do it more than once, not sure...I'm lookin, cause that would be a hoot....

A support group could be ..... "Big Boys and Our Toys".....

That would be cool. But if it requires funds for the fundraiser I don't think I will make it. But maybe we will get to a game or two (in the stands).
