Signing up to shoot the UC Davis vs. Humboldt homecoming football game I daydreamed that through some combination of luck and skill I would take a shot of that gaming, winning, diving catch as the play clock wound down to zero.
But as the fourth quarter came to a close, and the Aggies solidified their 38-17 win by running out the clock, that game-winning Hail Mary pass never came.
Still, I stuck around after the game to grab a few shots of the post-game — like the team’s tradition of singing the Aggie alma mater with the Band-uh! and Aggie Pack. Before heading home I noticed some of the players, like pictured quarterback Randy Wright, giving high-fives to a few lucky fans in the stands. To my surprise, my best work of the day wasn’t that magical once-in-a-lifetime. It was where I wasn’t originally looking.
