Camera:Canon EOS 7D

Burst Pursuit

Ran around on the court with the fisheye for a couple games. For the previous couple weeks I was shooting only with a single wide angle lens, but this week has been entirely fisheye. It’s like I need a refreshing look at what’s in front of me (aka everything I can see, as I cannot yet see behind myself). So a different lens goes on and voila! The world’s completely different.

This was from a string of perhaps five photos shot in rapid succession. A fraction of a second. A sizable fraction, perhaps you could say a majority fraction. 0.625, 5/8ths, whatever you want to call it. The camera shoots 8, and I don’t think I held for an entire human-defined beat of time’s eternal rhythmic progression. And I’m OK with that, the fact that I didn’t capture this in some highly precise god-given moment.

Whatever the case, this. is. polo. We had a frenchman in yesterday and when the two of us teamed up on offense… many goals were scored in some incredible plays. I wasn’t so lucky when he was my opponent though…

Summer sun.
