Hoopty Doo!

Winter sports are now in full swing and the conference games have started. Tuesday night I wandered over to one of the local high schools to photograph a game.

One thing that has changed about the game in the past 50 years is that these kids play above the rim...a lot! I believe that the tallest player on our team was 6'-4" and I don't believe anybody could actually dunk the ball.

On this night the home team, in white, lost. It was competitive for about three quarters before the visitors pulled away for good. Still, it was a good photo adventure.

If you have a local high school team near by, get out and go to a couple of games. It is good cheap entertainment. Take your camera and practice your action photography.

In our community senior citizens, age 65+, get free all sports passes. We can go to any home game in any sport for free. Now that is cheap entertainment. See you on the court, or in the pool, maybe at the indoor track, or on the wrestling mat.

  1. How super that senior citizens get free sport passes. This should be a criteria in South Africa as well. I will qualify next month! Excellent action shots. Thanks for sharing. Blessings Jo

  4. Not only are the players more athletic, I think they are better coached than when I was in school. I am the only sports fan in my household.
