While we’re all just a speck of sand in this thing we call the universe, and none of what we do really matters in the grand scheme of things, sometimes it’s worth noting and recording a little piece of history. Case in point, when Alfonso Soriano (aka “cry baby”) became only the fourth player in MLB history to hit 40 home runs and steal 40 bases, he etched his way into his own little piece of modern history. Some of you may have already forgotten this amazing feat, but thanks to Scott Ableman’s lens and quick-acting shutter finger, I never will.
I always thought it would be fun to be a sports photographer, or better yet, a presidential photographer, to record momorable moments such as this. I’ve taken quite a few photos of protests and rallies in the short time that I’ve lived in DC and I will always be able to look back at them and remember what it was like to be a part of something big.
