Hunting for feature photos before the speech.

I photographed President Obama's speech at Yosemite National Park yesterday for Getty Images. The celebration—in addition to being the kind of thing the commander-in-chief does on Father's Day weekend—marked the 100th anniversary of the creation of the National Park Service.

I shot this photo on my drive into the valley Saturday morning. I'm about ten feet from where Ansel Adams shot:

Although to be fair, swing a dead cat in Yosemite and you're ten feet from somewhere Adams shot something.

Omaha 3, Reno 0

Less than a day removed from Archie Bradley's career-high eight scoreless innings in the Aces' 3-1 victory Saturday night, Omaha's Christian Binford matched with a career-high eight of his own. Binford, making just his second Triple-A start, allowed four hits and struck out seven in the 3-0 victory.

Reno hits the road with a record of 19-23. Their eight-game road trip includes visits to New Orleans and Round Rock. They will be back in Reno on Tuesday, May 31.


Reno 3, Omaha 1

I think we just saw Archie Bradley's last start in Reno. The Okie threw eight scoreless innings Saturday night and stopped Reno's brief two-game skid. 

Reno concludes its eight-game, nine-day homestand Sunday against Omaha. First pitch is set for 1:05 p.m. Reno will send right-hander Josh Collmenter (0-0, 2.08) to the mound for another Major League rehab start.
