Game Day

Yesterday was game day in Portland with the Timbers hosting FC Dallas. I decided to record the day with a fisheye lens for something a little different from my usual photography. I think these photos speak for themselves.Portland_streets_on_match_day_-_53 Portland_streets_on_match_day_-_71

It was a very physical game: shirt pulling, hitting, tripping, shoving and ankles and legs tangling……not sure why there aren’t more broken ankles. Now that was on the pitch. In the stands it was mostly singing, yelling, swearing and drinking beer. In the end Portland won 2-1, but it was hard-fought and a great match.
