Arms Out

Sunday polo, oh yes, it’s Sunday polo. Glimpses of some sideline revelry. Regaling in stories of games played, even if minutes ago.

On the court it’s really a waiting game with a super wide lens – most shots have a dearth of foreground that’s nothing but plain asphalt. Standing on a cone in the thick of some goal-tending goal-getting action really fills up the frame, but often times it’s a wait to get there.

Off the court though, plenty of stuff to throw in front. The bench, leaned bikes, the occasional helmet. And further out, perhaps just a couple feet really, the real action gets integrated. Or something. Of course I look completely silly bending over into the realm of handlebars, but eh. Such is life/photo.

Tony says WHOA!
