Hey Colts fans, it's Matt Bowen your Colts Team Photographer. I will be posting my "Tuesday's Top 10" photo gallery linked to this blog on colts.com! The photo galleries will always have a theme, ranging from game action to creative images around the Colts Complex!
Today's gallery is about COMMUNITY. This gallery shows how the Colts coaches and staff teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to build a well deserving family a house (or at least the framework for a house, nothing too technical). I signed up for the 7am shift and was assigned to group 3. My plan was to help with the build while taking photos along the way to document the event. After a quick donut (or maybe two), I reported to my assigned group 3 work area. This is where the example of our Colts Community really became apparent to me and I realized that I really needed to up my game! "Up my game" you ask…let me explain. In my group 3 work area stood our Head Coach, Chuck Pagano and our General Manager, Ryan Grigson. They were not there to simply cut a ribbon or give a speech, they were there to work! So, needless to say, I had to "up my game" both in photography and with a hammer! We had just started laying out our framework, when it began to rain. No one even skipped a beat…you had marketing assistants and offensive line coaches working together gathering lumber like they had been on the job site for weeks! I split my time taking photos and hammering nails in the pouring rain along side Pagano and Grigson. You could really feel the Colts staff community coming together led by these two men to help out a family in need in our COMMUNITY!
If you have a great theme idea for a "Tuesday's Top 10" photo gallery, please let me know!
