Yeah – I admit it. I was getting bored!
(As always, be sure to click on the photo to see a larger version.)
But now we’re back at full tilt – football has started up again and volleyball too. Some of these photos I shoot to sell to the newspaper and others I take to post on my own business’ web site to sell to parents. Neither makes me a lot of money.
It’s nice to be back on the sidelines talking with other photographers and coaches I hadn’t seen for awhile.
But mostly its fun to watch the athletes. I can’t say I am a “sports nut”, though I’ve been known to rest my eyes during an occasional pro football game on a Sunday afternoon. I do enjoy watching the high school kids play. The vast majority will never play organized sports after high school. I’m sure they go to sleep at night dreaming of scoring the winning touchdown for the University of Texas at the national championship bowl game and the girls dream of winning a scholarship to a Division I school, but reality hits them at the next practice after they drop the ball or miss a spike.
Hey – that’s what sports are supposed to be about – and I’m glad it’s back for another year.
