Well I can’t tell you how good it feels to be back to football, and for me it was really important for the lockout to come to an end since my livelihood depends on the return of the NFL. Usually the hot and muggy Louisiana summer time training camps is not something I look forward to. This year, being without football for the entire off season had me chomping at the bit to get back to camp.
I squeezed in just two practice sessions in July, but I came away with plenty of fun photos to share, and August should bring a lot more with more camp and two preseason games to shoot.
The photo below of Jabari Greer breaking up and then intercepting a pass intended for receiver Marques Colston is my top shot from the early days of camp.
