A good coach can save a game, a great coach can save a life
A customer recently requested this special saying for some very special coaches so we created a line of photographs featuring the saying “A good coach can save a game, a great coach can save a life”.
The fine art photographs of vintage footballs with the special coaches message can be ordered as coaches gifts as fine art framed photographs for their coaches office or den. Or ordered on products. Several versions are available. More special football coach gift ideas can be found here – https://edward-fielding.pixels.com/art/football
Corn Hole Bean Bag tossing games are a lot of fun and makes a great gift!
What to get that fine fellow of a dad for Father’s Day? How about this premium gift idea? A beautiful, deluxe, luxury version of the fun backyard bean bag toss game known as “corn hole”.
Corn hole is a bit like horse shoes and a bit like skeetball or bowling. Maybe a bit like ladder ball, bocce or other tossing games. What makes corn hole better than horseshoes in my option is the ability for the bean bag to slide up the board and into the hole or to make a perfect “swish” shot.
You can knock off competitors like in bocce or block other people’s shots. This version of the game features regulation sized four foot boards, folds for portability and features a stunningly beautiful playing surface with directional graphic pattern.

How to Play Bean Bag Toss
The rules of Corn Hole are simple and easy to learn. Like all good backyard games, Corn Hole can be played with a beer in one hand.
Viva Sol Bean Bag Toss is played with 2 or 4 players divided into 2 teams – the blue and green team. The boards are set approximately 27 feet apart, and teams attempt to throw the bean bags onto the board for 1 point or into the hole for 3 points. Opposing teams take turns throwing their bean bags one at time at the target.
Teams can also play offensively by knocking the other teams’ bags off the board for fierce competition. Points from opposing teams cancel each other out, so only 1 team scores per round. The first team to reach 21 points wins. Viva Sol Bean Bag Toss is the perfect party game, and will be the centerpiece of any outdoor occasion, from backyard barbecues to tailgating.
Or Make Your Own Corn Hole Backyard Bean Toss Game

Print sales – Here is what has been selling in the new year.
Five of these framed and matted Vince Lombardi quotes with a photograph of a vintage leather football were purchased for a coaches award dinner in Missouri. Four smaller framed prints of the photograph with the Vince Lombardi quote were going to assistant coaches and a larger framed print with gold trim were being handed out to the head coach.
As the football season winds down, its time to thing about a thoughtful gift for the coaches and perhaps a special award for boosters or those parents who were always around with the orange slices.
These images featuring my father’s old leather football from the 1950s and quotes from Vince Lombardi are popular as gifts for coaches and other special people related to the team and the season including the referees.
The original sense of the word “coach” is that of a horse-drawn carriage, deriving ultimately from the Hungarian city of Kocs where such vehicles were first made. Students at the University of Oxford in the early nineteenth-century used the slang word to refer to a private tutor who would drive a less able student through his examinations just like horse driving.
Britain took the lead in upgrading the status of sports in the 19th century. For sports to become professionalized, “coacher” had to become established. It gradually professionalized in the Victorian era and the role was well established by 1914. In the First World War, military units sought out the coaches to supervise physical conditioning and develop morale-building teams.
A red Christmas present sitting inside an old rusty truck. Quechee, Vermont. Fine art photography by Edward M. Fielding
Someone Remembered takes place in a field in Vermont where an old farm truck took its last breaths and died. Back in the day before we had modern conveniences such as transfer stations, recycling or even dumps. Old cars and farm machinery simply ended where their usefulness ended.
I’ve photographed this old truck in the past and it’s a favorite spot of mine. It’s in the database so to speak – a swirling folder of locations I keep in my head. Since working with book publishers these last few years creating book cover images, I’ve been working on introducing more and more storytelling in my images. Creating images that feel like a frame out of a movie or page out of a book rather than simple documentation of an object or scene.
Rather any simple documentation of a subject I want the image to create story-lines in the viewer’s head. Close up shots of this truck in the past suggested to me that maybe the truck was in an accident, maybe the driver was drunk and hit a tree or it was some tragic suicide. Maybe the truck is haunted?
