Bay Area Derby Pride Double Header

I almost did not photograph last weekend’s Bay Area Derby Pride double header. I would have missed something special.

My derby photographs were not special, although I took a few decent action pictures somehow. There are two slideshows below the next two photographs.

In the second bout, Richmond Wrecking Belles defeated the San Francisco ShEvil Dead.

After the first bout, the skaters gathered while a referee was honored. Then the rest of us were honored to be in the presence of something special.

Spring Forward Part 2 – Roller Derby Season Begins

I am an official photographers for the [wb_fb_f name=”bayareaderbygirls” id=””] . I have a camera, a press badge and a really cool derby name. (I am P Giddy.) One of my friends asked me how I lucked into this gig. I really do not know. I showed up one day after attending a bout. I think I will keep showing up until they tell me its time to leave.

The B.ay A.rea D.erby Girl Season Opener! was last weekend. I posted derby photos on my blog and my personal Facebook page, but many of my best photos were not seen. I combined two events into one post and the slideshows were inside the blog post. I am posting the derby photos again today so that more people can see more derby photos.
