Well, yet another Season of Band Competitions and Football games is over. Hope you guy's enjoy the photo's from this football season.
My wife and I were reminiscing about our Senior Year when the Mesquite Skeeters made it all the way to State, and exactly 40 years ago we were in the Cotton Bowl, just like you guys were this year. Robin was in the All-Stars and I was )you guessed it!) doing the School Photography for the MHS Newspaper and Annual! Some things never change! That night was so foggy no one saw the game, except for those standing on the sidelines! It is remembered as the Fog Bowl! I would not be surprised if you guys do not remember this as the "Rain Bowl!"
I will tell you, cherish these moments...they go by so quickly and you are blessed to have these memories. We cherish ours, and can tell you with personal experience that these are memories you will be talking about 40 years from now. Many of your classmates are so uninvolved that they will look back on their High School days without the fun memories and accomplishments that you Burnt Orange Band members, Drill Team, Football players, Cheerleaders, etc. have earned. Such a shame.
The next big event for me will be your Band Banquet. And here's the catch. So far, I have made almost no money photographing your many games, competitions, and banquets. This web site costs me $140 per year to maintain, and my equipment costs are staggering. I am eyeing a $500 lens for photographing group shots you guys always ask of me. It will especially be necessary for the Band Banquet if I shoot it again (last year there were NO sales from that event). Please keep that in mind, I really need to recoup some of these expenses...I only got back into photography to serve the needs of the Burnt Orange Band with professional quality photography. 10 years from now you guys will love the fact that this website is still here with all your memories in tact, and available for downloading and ordering. That is my goal.
