I am clearly out of the groove of taking sports photos. This Saturday marked the opening of basketball season for both kids and I completely failed in the photography department. Kate had her game on Saturday, and I showed up wit a drained battery and no back-up. At least I got midway through the second quarter before the battery died. Kate had a good game, too. She scored 4 points for her team and if you’ve ever watched rec league 4 th grade girls basketball, you won’t be surprised to find out that she was the high scorer! Those pictures are here.
Ben’s game was on Sunday and I had a freshly charged battery! But no memory cards. I had forgotten to put them in the camera bag I use for basketball (my soccer bag is one that will accommodate the camera with a long lens already mounted, whereas I use the 85 1.8 to shoot basketball). So of course I have NO pictures from that game. And it’s too bad, since th Ben also had a good game, including 6 points in the 4 th quarter, with his last basket being the game winner. So frustrating, but now my bag is all packed, and double and triple checked.
