In 1982 I became the Chief Photographer at The Modesto Bee and took on the extra job of covering the 49er games.Â The sports department told me the Niners werenâ€™t very good but obliged me by helping me get credentials.Â Who knew that Bill Walsh and Joe Montana would take the team to the Superbowl that very year. It was a heck of a ride and I am still photographing games.Â Two years ago in late May I had both of my knees replaced.Â I didnâ€™t miss any games, but it wasnâ€™t easy getting back to kneeling at Candlestick Park.Â This past year, at 6-10 the 49ers were even shakier than my knees.Â If you would like to see the rest of my 49er images click here.
