Game Day in Ann Arbor is always an adventure! Dale & I left the house at 9AM. It rained on the way to the stadium. Dale dropped me at Michigan Stadium to get checked-in and drove to the Ann Arbor Airport where he waited until a little before the pre-game show to get in the air.
I always enjoy watching fans capture the moment in pictures – making memories and I enjoy photographing them as well.
I was planning on photographing the pre-game show from the scoreboard, but didn’t want to get the cameras wet, so I went to the 6th floor media section. Well, the rain stopped about 10 minutes prior to the game, so I made my way down and through the thousands of Michigan fans just a few minutes before the show. I was hoping to get more of the city in the background, but I wasn’t high enough.
We knew that the University of Michigan Marching Band would put on a spectacular program and wanted to capture it from the air. (It was AMAIZING!)
I’m certain that there is nothing in the world like this photograph that Dale took from the air; the huge flag on the field, classic view of Michigan Stadium with the campus/city of Ann Arbor in the background. The American Flag and the University of Michigan “M” scoreboard seems to glow amongst the grey gloomy skies.
The half-time show was AMAIZING with the finale being the American Flag that filled the entire field. I have never seen such a large flag. Sure made me proud to be an American!
I didn’t take a lot of game photographs, but I always enjoy seeing and photographing Coach Harbaugh congratulating the players as they run off the field.
Our facebook page will include more game day photos, especially some photographs of fans.
