A field of their own

I shot the inaugural game at the new cricket field at Beckman Park in Lodi. Cricket enthusiasts had been lobbying the city for a place large enough to play for some time and they had finally gotten their wish. Although I’ve shot cricket a few times before, I don’t know much about game. There are […]

This ain’t your father’s badminton

Bear Creek badminton player Joseph Nguyen hits a a forehand during the boys # 1 singles match against Kevin Taylor of Lodi High at Lodi. When I think of badminton, I conjure up visions of a picnic scene with the family lazily lobbing the birdie over a rickety net at a park or in a […]
