Welcome back to the Pit

This week is my busiest one so far this year! We kicked off Greek Week 2009 yesterday with the ever infamous tug competition (remember these pictures from last year?) and I'll be photographing events from now until next Tuesday. I also have a wedding and an engagement shoot to do this weekend, so look out for those images coming soon as well. Woohoo! I can't wait. Here are a few of my favorites from this year's competition.

And last but most CERTAINLY not least, here's a picture of my AGD sisters rockin' their tug thug faces!

And as an added bonus, here's a short film clip of one of the winning pulls yesterday, courtesy of my new Webbie HD. I wanted to give you a better idea of what it's like to be in the pit. It is seriously intense! Keep in mind, this is only the last few seconds of a round that went on for about 8 minutes or so. I can't imagine how hard that has to be - and in the MUD, too! Luckily I remembered to wear my XL blue super poncho, otherwise my whole body would have been covered in that nasty, orange sludge.

WARNING! Make sure your volume is turned WAY down before you view this clip. If not, you might go deaf. Just sayin'.
