PSU at Temple

I know I'm a week late posting this, but better late then never.

Last weekend I traveled to Philadelphia for the Penn State vs Temple game at Lincoln Financial Field. I had never been to the link before, so it was exciting to be there and learn my way around the stadium so when I get to shoot a pro game I'll know what to do.

The game was a little nerve racking for Penn Staters, but we pulled through in the end and I had a lot of images I liked.

Joe was down on the field walking before the game, the first time all season.

Park(ing) Day

Friday was national Park(ing) Day. This national movement converts parallel parking spots into a park for a day. Three teams of Penn State Landscape Architecture students took part in the event in downtown State College, but with a twist to their parks. Everything they used had to be recyclable and had to draw in community interaction. It was a great brisk morning to photograph and see what they came up with.

The first team, "Plastic Earth," made a landscape out of used plastic bottles, and bamboo. Their effort was to show passerby's what could end up in our parks if people don't recycle.

The second team, "Take a Tree, Leave a Tree," had a large piece of dry wall and invited anyone to come draw a tree on the mural. If one drew a tree they were invited to take a spruce tree seedling to plant.

The last team, "Grab a coffee, grab a book, grab a seat," invited you into their street side cafe. With a mini book shelf and some large comfy chairs you could read about architecture and landscape.

Fall is officially here

With football starting I said fall was here, but it hadn't really felt like it. Until today. With a drastic drop in temperature and the high only being in the 50's I guess it's time to put away my capri's and sandals and load up my car with extra layers for these brisk nights. Luckily I still had a pair of gloves in my car from the spring which came in handy tonight at girls soccer.

Alabama vs Penn State

Fall has arrived and my Friday nights and Saturday afternoons are now filled with football!

I had a year off from cover Penn State football, so trying to get back into the swing of things. Here are some of my favorites from the weekends match up against Alabama in Beaver Stadium.
