Sox think highly of former Brave Tyler Flowers

Some players are easy to photograph. Elvis Andrus, Andy Marte, Jeff Francoeur, Brian McCann, Jason Heyward come to mind. I love those guys. Always smiling, always animated. Always easy to shoot. My favorite photos of these guys would fill a book.
Some guys are more of a challenge. I don’t always know why. Sometimes I just haven’t found the right touch with some guys, I guess. It’s not their fault; just mine.
I don’t have a single photo of Tyler Flowers that I like, and now that he’s with the White Sox organization I might not get another chance any time soon. However, I’m happy for him because the Sox organization thinks highly of his abilities and has plans for him. Atlanta let him go in the Javier Vasquez trade.
Here’s one shot I took on July 11, 2008, that’s okay, but I could have done better.
