Floods, Steel and Baseball

I spent a long day checking out the city of Omaha, Nebraska with my friend Mike, who I met in the small town of Chadron, Nebraska two years ago while I was returning from Montana and he and his gang were on their way to Sturgis, North Dakota for the annual, massive gathering of bikers. Mike escorted me around Omaha in his shiny black Hummer. We photographed the flooding Missouri River at the Mormon Bridge (I-680 crossing from Iowa into the northern part of the city), a steel fabricating plant, the decaying Burlington Rail Station, and enjoyed the new TD Ameritrade Park baseball stadium for part of the College World Series game between Texas and Florida.

    It was a real pleasure spending time with David as he ‘shot’ Omaha last Saturday. He has a real passion for his work and you can see it in teh pictures he takes. He was fun to watch as he worked for the best light and picture of the moment. I really enjoyed the day we spent travelling around town. It was a busy day for both of us. I wish him all the best until he comes back to shoot more of the Big O!!!
