I’m the Chief Everything Officer of CharlieDog and Friends, but I also have another career that I will probably never let go of, and that’s as a sports photographer for The New York Times (and now Sports Illustrated).
And today — although I SWORE I would never shoot “red carpet” — my assignment is to shoot (oh yes) red carpet arrivals at the NFL draft. So I guess it’s sports.
And it’s about time. Long after the last whistle blows on the field of an NFL game, and after I’ve filed my pictures for the night and I’ve packed up to go home, I like to watch the players leave the stadium, trickling out toward waiting team buses, either surrounded by their families or solitary, with earbuds in.
They’re usually dressed exquisitely, in colors that make you think of Easter, or street festivals. Satins and seersuckers, suits in pale yellow, purple. All white. Magic.
So today’s assignment, I don’t mind so much. Radio City Music Hall. Then back to the dogs.
