Labor Day

We had beautiful weather for the last day of the season at Catalina Beach Club.

I saw Santa on the beach. He must've been really hot!

US Open Sunday

The grounds sure have changed a lot since I was last here.

There are John Zimmerman images all over site promoting the Ashe '68 VR show.




The "new" Armstrong Stadium

I wish I could've been here for the dedication of the Bud Collins US Open Media Center in 2015. I sure miss Bud ... one of my favorite people in tennis.

I was happy to see my 30’x20’ pic of Agassi & Sampras from the 2002 US Open final, still hanging in Ashe Stadium.

The Unisphere was a lot lighter than I expected.



Mary & I walked around the New York State Pavilion from the 1964-1965 World's Fair in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. The light was great & it looked awesome against the blue sky.


The Sony A9 eye tracking autofocus is crazy! It actually follows the subject's eyes ... even when shooting Serena thru the net.


Rafa's awesome Nikes celebrate his titles in 2010, 2013 & 2017.

Saturday at Catalina

Great windy day for flying kites on the beach.

There was a foam party for kids on the camp deck.

US Open Friday

I haven't been to the US Open since 2009! That was when I achieved 25 years of coverage & was okay ending my streak. Mary & I met up with Kathy when we got on site.

We went to check out the Ashe '68 VR Experience in Armstrong featuring images by John Zimmerman. Great stuff!






The "new" Grandstand.

Venus vs Serena in Arthur Ashe Stadium

I used the Sony A9 for the first time. It was awesome!

iPhone X of course.

Serena

Serena won 6-1, 6-2.

Siblings & Sunken Meadow

We went to visit Stella's brother Bailey & his sister Casey. I, of course, brought them lots of toys. Amy, Howie, Elyssa & Nikki were there too.



Tug-o-war snake

Winnie LOVES hanging out on Bailey's head! Stella definitely would not like it!

Afterwards, we went to Sunken Meadow State Park with Mary's family.
