In what was my first posed photograph of Vin Scully, I asked him to pose with Tommy’s wife Jo, who was visiting Dodgertown. Seeing how much more relaxed everyone is during Spring Training, I had less fear of asking. As a young buck not knowing anyone during my first Spring Training, it was a huge step for me to get over my nerves and ask him.

I have taken a lot of images of Vin since that day and one of my favorites is from HIS bobblehead day in August of 2012 where divine intervention took place.

As a resident of Vero Beach since 1993 and a lifelong Dodger fan, this photo nearly brought tears to my eyes. Sounds silly, but I know exactly where that photo was taken. That facility was a staple of my childhood, in terribly saddened that they’re gone. I still bleed Dodger Blue though. Great work Jon, keep it up.

Both pictures are beautiful. Love the black and white and the picture with the rainbow. Thanks for sharing Jon!

You have a gift! So happy you share with all of us.
Hope to see you soon at a game!!
