"Jeter! Jeter!" Houston, Texas, July 2004
There were many who expressed "obsession" with pictures of coffee or chocolate, while a lot of people shot something they're obsessed with shooting — signs, the moon, etc. And at least one of a bottle of Calvin Klein's Obsession.
This shot serves both purposes for me. The image depicts the obsession of the fans; it also represents my personal obsession with baseball. The game is the reason I started shooting. At one time I wanted to be a sports photographer. I realized the other night that I'm much better off doing it for a hobby. I enjoy it more that way, I'm sure.
