track season has started

I love taking live action shots. At a track meet, there are a few events that make for good pictures. I decided to step away from snapping pictures of my son [running] and look at some of those events from different perspectives. For the above picture and the ones below (different angle), I actually laid on the ground, as near to the mat as the officials would let me, and pointed my camera up towards the pole vaulting bar.

Great shots Diana!!

I was just saying to T the other day when we were outside - It feels like spring sports weather. I was on the track team and he was on the tennis team!

Pole vaulting became available to girls when I was a senior - I didn't attempt it, but I've always been amazed by those athletes (my dad pole vaulted!)

Those are great action pictures.
It looks a bit too cold that high up for me. Love the sky as the background.

My WW is a child's playhouse. Hope you can stop by and take a peek!
