On my way home, I pass this park every day but for some reason I told myself to look over towards the basketball court today. So I looked over and saw a bunch of guys playing basketball...at 2:30...in this heat... So kudos to them for being out there and not passing out like I would've done. But the guys were all very welcoming and cool to be around. Some of them asked me if I was shooting for someone big which was a big "no" from me. I explained that I did a lot of sports photography in my college days and that I needed to get some extra practice for what I have planned for this week. I definitely need to get my eyes back into the swing of catching action so this was the next best thing for some extra practice. Also, it's been four months since I last shot with my 1D Mark III so I had to dust that bad boy off and get some shots with it.
Some of the guys actually enjoy going to Downtown Dallas and doing shoots so I can't wait to link up with them and head down to Dallas for some street photography. These are the moments that I live for. Making these connections and getting to know people that I wouldn't normally make an effort to reach out to. After being at work since 5:30 in the morning, that's the last thing I want to do is interact with people but today was different. Maybe next time I see the fellas out there playing ball, I may just join them. Don't know how well that would turn out since my soccer and track running skills don't cross over to basketball very well. *inserts wide eye emoji*
I would write more but I'm feeling a nap coming on!
