Day 2
Minnesota fans at the Big O 2016

It's never too early for Minnesota fans.  The Minnesota fans may be the most dedicated and passionate fans in all of roller derby. Maybe even in all of sport.

This is a set that a year or two from now, I'll look at to remind myself where I might possibly clamp my super-clamps holding the radio-triggered remote flash units.

I recently acquired this fancy little point and shoot, and it has a feature that is new to me, but familiar to many photographers, many people even. Before about a month ago, I had never used this feature (outside a handful of fancy-phone snaps) in eight years of derby shooting.  It's call AUTO-FOCUS.  And what can I say, this is brilliant.  Check out the beeeooooteeful bokay!
