On Monday the AJC had me go out to Turner Field to get photos of fans as they were making their way to the stadium for opening Day against the Chicago Cubs and then again as fans were leaving for another story about how there is nothing to do near the stadium after games.
I picked up a shift on Monday morning at CNN so I didn’t get off work until about 2:30, with traffic I didn’t make it down to The Ted until 3:15 or so. I was freaking out the whole time because I wasn’t sure if I’d have enough time to get any photos before the game started at 4:10. Fortunately, I think the panic mode had me working in overdrive and I sent in almost 20 photos when it came time to file. Better to have too much than too little though.
