EDGEOFPHOTOGRAPHY

Hi! Welcome to my SmugMug site . . . I'm Steve Edgerly and photography has been a passion of mine since a very young age. Over the years, I have enjoyed capturing special moments of all of my daughters' sporting events, family vacations and everything in between. Spend a few moments viewing my slide show below to see some of my favorite shots, then scroll down to the Gallery to see if you can find something for yourself. Any comments on galleries or individual pics are greatly appreciated.

Baseball is my other passion . . Ted Williams once said. "Baseball is the only field of endeavor where a man can succeed three times out of ten and be considered a good performer."

Hope you enjoy the site!

  • This is my small tribute to the people of Boston. I had the opportunity to be in Boston over the last couple days. It's a city feeling great pain, but at the same time there is a out pouring of togetherness and a real feeling that this will draw the people into a strong bond. They made you feel like this will make them stronger and the injured will heal. These shots are from around the area of the finish line. As you can see, the memorials set up were truly moving and you could feel the presence of those lost or injured.... Thank You Boston for opening your arms and allowing visitors in and making all feel very welcomed. God Bless you all! I have put all the photos that I have edited from this trip into a gallery for all to see. Take a look - full size is so much more powerful.
