This past week, New York Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter said goodbye to Seattle. Well, at least in a Yankees uniform. After announcing his retirement, this will be the last time he plays in Seattle (unless the two team meet in the playoffs, fingers crossed!). Yankees fans showed up in busloads. Although this is normal whenever the team plays in Seattle, it was a little different as a majority of the fans were sporting Derek Jeter gear and holding “Goodbye Jeter signs.”
I feel privileged that I had the opportunity to photograph the future hall of famer over the past 4 years while photographing the Seattle Mariners and I wish him luck in his future endeavors.
Below are a few of my favorite images from the two games I covered last week between the Seattle Mariners and New York Yankees including a few extra of Jeter.

This past Sunday I was assigned to cover the Seattle Seahawks vs New York Jets NFL football game in Seattle, WA. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the game. Enjoy!

My aunt and cousin trained all year to run the 2012 New York Marathon. As many of you know by now, the Marathon has been called off due to Hurricane Sandy. Both of them are still in New York and plan to run 26 miles around central park Sunday morning to raise money for those who have been affected by Sandy. Below is their message:
“We all have different reasons for running a marathon, but we chose NY because there is no other place on earth like this city. We are running 26 miles around Central Park at 8:00 Sunday morning to support New York Cares in their efforts to provide resources to those affected by Hurricane Sandy.
If you would like to support our fellow New Yorkers, please join us at the corner of Columbus Circle and Central Park Drive. Bring your fuel, hydration and cheering squad and let’s have the most memorable run of our life.”
