I was out shooting some early morning photo’s from the rooftop of the new OSF Milestone building. The rooftop has two state of the art helicopter landing pads for emergency patients. The view is spectacular looking out over the River City.

Shot’s from Sunday at the 23rd annual Peoria Cycling Classic from the streets of downtown Peoria. This years race was once again a top notch event. Chicago native David Moyer of xXx Racing dominated the 38-man field winning the Illinois State Criterium Championship by half a lap. Greg Springborn from the Proctor Cycling Team, rode in two masters category events and the featured race, the Pro 1/2. Oh, and the children’s exhibition earlier in the day.

Images from The Miracle League game today between the Cubs and the Cardinals. I was on hand to show support for my friend Payton McSimov who is an Easter Seals Ambassador. My plan was to take a few shot’s of him playing a game that he truly loves. Well, my emotions got the best of me as I could not believe what I seeing. These young athletes put on a extremely entertaining display of there baseball skills. When I arrived back in Peoria to download my digital files I found that I had taken 1,237 images. That is nothing new for anyone who knows me. I never set limits and will shoot until I get what is needed. The photo’s will add up when you own camera’s that will capture 10 frames per second. I always welcome your comments.

A slide-show that I put together from today’s Chicago Cubs vs St. Louis Cardinals action in Bloomington, IL today. No it wasn’t the overpaid prima donnas from the MLB. This is the new Miracle League of Central, IL that provides an opportunity for children with disabilities to play baseball!  Sit back with a cool bevarage and enjoy the show. My hope is that this will inspire & motivate you to get behind and donate to this fantastic new program for the kids. Thanks for viewing and your comments are always welcome.

I was up on the Hilltop this afternoon to get a few snaps of the final day of basketball camp. Bradley University head coach Jim Les and his staff have one of the premier basketball camps in the midwest. The smiles on all of the kids faces tells the story. They get superb instruction from the players and coaches and then they get to showcase there new skills on the hardwood. The final game of camp was a sudden death overtime thriller that gave coach Sam Maniscalco the title. You need to contact Men’s Basketball secretary Patty Reck for all the details on next years camp.
