i blame coach dennis erickson completely for the absolute disaster that happened today to the niners. i understand the idea of loyalty to your “star” player, but come on, we’re in this to win games, not be loyal losers!

i don’t think that i ever want to see garcia in a niners uniform again. why did it take 4 interceptions before erickson pulled out garcia? why? why take out your hot quarterback who has filled in remarkably? why pull out garcia after there’s no chance that rattay could do anything about it? why not leave garcia in and let go down with the sinking ship?

i hope that the coaching staff takes a very good look at the niners and decide to start rattay permanently.


tea and crumpets?

yesterday i went to gina’s baby shower. this was my first baby shower and i don’t think that i will be going to too many of these. i was asked to go to the baby shower and help take pictures of the event. the baby shower was at the laurel court at the fairmont hotel. talk about fancy!

the restaurant was dimly lit and unfortunately i didn’t have very many options when it came to taking pictures in the low light. i decided to shoot in an all prime set up. i brought several lenses and i borrowed a few lenses from paul as well. this wa the first all-prime lens shoot i’ve ever done. it was sort of a pain switching from lens to lens, but it definitely gave me the speed that i needed to take pictures.

it was a lot of fun and it was nice to indulge in the finer things in life…and i can now say that i’ve had a crumpet before!
