Well, *somebody* had to change the name of this thread...

     Worth watching for in re-runs this summer is the "National Geographic
Explorer" segment that featured Harvey and his working style, covering (as
best I can recall -- I tuned into the tail end of it when it aired about a
month ago) a championship game in the Cuban baseball league. NGE runs on
Sunday evening on one of the Turner cable channels, and they occasionally
profile one of the magazine's staff or contract photographers. Harvey was
working with one M6 and a small flash, both of which were pretty well soaked
with champagne or rum or whatever in the winner's locker room after the
game, as was Harvey. Hard work, but it looked like a fun assignment
nevertheless. Looking forward to seeing it in the magazine.
