Really, I’m just trying to keep from being bored
The Missouri softball team won its regional tournament today, beating Illinois State 2-1. But that’s not why I’m writing today. I want to know if this picture works.
No, there’s no more at the top of the photo. Or the left. Or the right. The shadow helps, right?
You know how it is: after about five games of any type, all the pictures can start to look alike. We’re always looking for new or different ways to show things. It’s hard to get an original shot — softball’s been around since 1930 or so, photography since, well, a long time.
I’ve been eyeing that “Missouri” on the bases for some time but haven’t had the right moment yet. I’ve also been eyeing this overhead position at first base. Here in Columbia we all shoot from this spot, making originality that much tougher. So I got this shot today. I published it even though I’m not entirely sure it works.
What do you think? And thanks for your comments.
