They Kidnap Horses, Don’t They?

Not to be confused with the 1969 movie, “They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?”

Although I’m no longer a sports fan, as an ex-Philadelphian, I’m glad the Eagles won the Super Bowl. Trust me, it has been a long, hard road for that franchise and its fans. As I look at 2018’s post-game mayhem, I’m reminded of the Philadelphia Phillies 2008 World Series victory riot. Below are a few of my images from that war zone. That night, I saw things that no human should witness but this Super Bowl “celebration” exceeded my expectations. This time, they even stole police horses!

A former event photographer, I became an early adopter of, advocate for, and then digital camera addict. After a million frames and thousands of dollars spent, I refuse to be distracted checking battery levels, scene modes, number of megapixels, video settings, and other marketing gimmicks that promote technology over the eyes of the photographer. One camera; one focal length; a focused perspective.
