Saints field

This is a picture of the womens softball field on a Sunday after noon. I resized the photo and thought it was a nice view of the fields.

Lacrosse stick

Above is a picture of my lacrosse stick and ball that I took after shooting around for a little bit on a Sunday after noon. I choose to take this picture from a birds eye view. I thought it was kinda cool looking down on the stick and ball to create a down ward slop.

Bird on fence

Above is a picture of a bird that was resting on the net that surrounds the women's field hockey field beside the Timken center. I like this picture a lot because I caught this little guy taking a break from flying, and catching him in his natural setting is very interesting.


This is a picture of my car that was taken up by the lacrosse fields, and I also resized the picture.
