2 Down, 2 to Go
We are getting to the home stretch of the 2008-2009 college hockey season and playoffs are looming. BU pulled out two wins against the University of Massachusetts - Amherst this weekend during the home-and-home series. Getting to the Mullins Center at UMass is like going through a life size maze - evident by the 3 hours it took to get there from Boston. The light in the Mullins Center, however, is well worth the drive. Different teams have different openings and my favorite ones usually consist of spotlights and pitch black arenas. I like playing with the light, and the picture above allowed me to do that. The UMass team lined up on the goal line before the game and the light cast long shadows behind the players. The light was moving up and down the line, so the players at the far end are illuminated while the players in the foreground are visible through their shadows. I thought it posed a nice contrast and summed up the very different games we saw this weekend from the same two teams.
