The Final Day of the Big Ten Swimming and Diving Championships

Yesterday I was back in the pool to photograph the final day of the Big Ten Swimming and Diving Championships. I did not realize how much fun it would be to photograph a multi day championship like this. I really gained a new appreciation for swimming, and I can’t wait to photograph it again. The more you are around these amazing athletes the more you want to be around them more. Maybe next year I can make it to the championships wherever they are being held at.

Purdue Basketball Beats Maryland

In between swimming sessions I walked over to Mackey Arena to see the #20 Boilermakers face off against the #10 Terrapins of Maryland. Purdue won, and the crowd was absolutely electric. I will have more on that game in a couple of days, but for now you can enjoy my Exposure page from the game here.

Bonus Photos

I have been thinking about putting together an Exposure page for the entire championship. I think that I may do that including some of my favorite images from the tournament. I may wait a few days to let the photos sit a while before looking at them again. It was a fun four days though, and I can’t wait to put the page together. Before I do that though let’s look back at some of my favorite photos from the last day of the tournament.
