I made a return visit to Texas A&M yesterday with the girlfriend to take in one of the greatest spectacles in all of sports: a Texas A&M football game at the legendary Kyle Field. Yes, yes, I know your school is awesome and all that, but Kyle Field is the most unique gameday experience in all of College Football, bar none. If you disagree, well, leave me a comment I guess but I’m about as Aggie as it gets so don’t count on it changing my mind 🙂
Anyhoo, it was a rough game for the Aggies yesterday, as the Auburn Tigers played with 8 men in the box for most of the day with single coverage, completely disrespecting our QB. Our offense responded aggressively by not going deep and also fumbling the ball at a critical time. Bummer of a game, Auburn won 28-20, but
we fixed it with drinking a bad day as an Aggie is still better than a good day as an Anything Else.
I bet you thought I’d bring my new Fuji GFX100 to capture a super mega ultra high-resolution image of the stadium, like I did a few years back in my Aggie-viral Kyle Field picture, which is now the cover of a CD and on a pool table in the player locker room, right? Well, you’re exactly wrong. I should’ve brought the Fuji but didn’t want to risk it being damaged in the normal gameday nonsense.
So, I called an audible and used my iPhone X. I didn’t use the panorama mode, just took three images that I stitched into a panorama and I love how it turned out (game results aside).
On the way back home, we decided to stop at the Aggie Barn in Reagan, Texas, for another shot, again with the iPhone X, I remain constantly impressed that a phone can take this great of a picture!
If all this Aggie stuff isn’t your type of thing, send me to your school and I’ll make some great images!
