7/17 - Return of the Photographer, Iowa Cubs on CBS Sports with the Famous Chicken

Hello folks.

I have returned.

After nearly 8-9 months of inactivity, I decided to dust off the old blog and post some photos that I captured at last night's Iowa Cubs game! They played the Memphis Redbirds (Cardinals' AAA team) and they were on national TV, playing on CBS Sports. The Famous Chicken also paid them a visit.

Here's to hoping I keep this blog alive for the rest of the season!
