29 Long Years…GO DODGERS!!!

Thinking back to that 1988 World Series game one Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Oakland A’s.  I was 14 years old and a freshman in High School.  I had gone to a wedding with my mom and we were at her friend’s house in Glendale after the reception.   I didn’t really know anyone there, but we all had one thing in common, we were cheering for the Dodgers.  Little did we know that we were witnessing a historic moment in sports.  Thinking back, that 1988 Dodger team didn’t really have any superstars on it, take a look below.

The Game 1 starting lineup consisted of:

The A’s were loaded with stars: Carney Lansford, Dave Henderson, Jose Canseco, Dave Parker, Mark McGwire, Terry Steinbach, Glenn Hubbard, Walt Weiss, and Dave Stewart and were the heavy favorites.

Kirk Gibson who was one most productive bats in the lineup during the year batted .290 with 25 HR and 76 RBI didn’t even start the game.  Gibson wasn’t even dressed when the 9th inning began.  He was getting treatment for his leg injury suffered in Game 5 vs. the NY Mets while sliding to break up a double play at second base.

How could this 1988 Dodger team possibly win?  The A’s were a heavy favorite, but in the end, the Dodgers won it all in 5 games! Here are some of my favorite images from that series.

Who can forget Orel Hershiser’s scoreless inning streak in 1988? 59 consecutive innings without a run!

 

I feel like 29 years has been enough, its time to bring the World Series Championship back to Los Angeles.

Just a few shots from RAW ARTISTS LA show I attended last weekend #rawartistsla

Last Saturday I was invited to take pictures for the runway show for RAW ARTISTS Los Angeles specifically for Lil’ Lou Lou the vintage accessory and children,s line is inspired by the 40s, 50s and 60s.  Although I am not know for runway photography, I figured it would be fun as well as a learning experience.  It turned out to be a very humbling experience as I found out, and realize I need to hone my skills for a shoot like this.  I did learn a lot and I know several things I would do differently, but when it comes down to it, I really just needed a better zoom lens.  I was just too far away from the subjects on the stage.  Here are a few of the pix from that night.

USC vs. Stanford SWEET REVENGE

What a big win for our USC Trojans this year weekend!

Up until Saturday, USC had lost 4 straight football games to Stanford.  Stanford also upset USC in one of the most talked about upsets in college football history.  http://espn.go.com/ncf/recap?gameId=272790030

This Saturday was about redemption and a little bit of  payback.

I was there to witness quite a few the recent games between USC and Stanford including that dreaded upset in 2007.

Here are just a few pictures from this past game on Saturday which I believe put USC back on the map.
