Here are a few of my favorite photos from telling the story of the Green Bay Packers‘ win over the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field on Sunday, January 1, 2023. The win kept the Packers’ hopes alive to make the NFL playoffs. If the Packers can beat the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field next weekend they are in.
I started my day by shooting tailing gating photos and capturing Viking fans greeting the team buses as they arrived for the game. Most photographers dread shooting tailgating photos, but I actually like to and I feel like it gets me into game mode. The game had some major highlights with both a kickoff and an interception being run back for a touchdown, but unfortunately, they went to the south end zone and I’m based in the north. Even Aaron Rodgers’ run for a touchdown went to the opposite end zone from me. You would think eventually things would even out and the same amount of touchdowns would happen in each end zone, but it sure seems like the Packers like to score in the opposite end zone from me.
Next week’s regular season finally will be a big game with both the Lions and Packers battling for a playoff spot. I’ll be there again, in the north end zone.
Thanks for looking!
