Working with the Associated Press

Fans cheers as San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum drives past.
It was wild walking down Market street in San Francisco on Wednesday during the Giants World Series parade. Confetti was everywhere and so were screaming fans in orange and black.

I got asked by my friend Marcio J. Sanchez who is a staff photographer at Associated Press to help out, which was dream call for me. The above photo got put on the wire and was distributed all over the world with the rest of the photos they published.

A few weeks before, I got asked to help shoot the post-season in Oakland as the A's took on the Detroit Tigers in the American League Division Series.

They forced a game 5, but lost. The Tigers got swept by the Giants in the World Series and lost in Detroit.

Both events were crazy. We worked really long hours, but it was really exciting being on the field level when the home team won in the post-season.

I might start following baseball again.
