(Let’s try this again) A favorite photo!

Being that I have two boys (13 & 16) that play Little League baseball, and my interest in photograpy, I have spent a LOT of time taking pictures of them and their team.  It's All-Star season now, and I'm happy to report that both boys made the team in their respective divisions.  But that's not the point of this posting.  No, this one is about a photograph I took over this last weekend of one of the games.  This photograph doesn't have my son in it, but I just LOVED how it turned out.  Here it is:

It's the batter's stance, the look on the batter's face, the ball in the glove, the position of the ball in relation to the batter's look, the anticipation of the call being made.  All summed up in an instant in time.  I just had to point this one out, because I doubt that most parents (the main viewer of my photography website) would notice these aspects of the image.

    Well, was it a strike?

    John, that’s a really good question. One that we’ll probably never know the answer to.

  4. Looks a little high and outside to me, but of course you can only guage from the catcher’s glove.

    Nice pic. One of those that captures a "moment".
