This year, I tried out for the HMS (Homewood Middle School) Tennis Team, and made it. Monday, we had a match over at Simmons Middle in Hoover. The system for tennis matches is pretty weird, so I wasnt competing in this one, but taking photos for the school news paper. I seem to be the only one in HMS that can operate a camera...
Anyhow, as I was getting ready to go through the gate into the courts with camera in hand, I stopped to tie my shoe, and set my camera down, turned on, right in front of me, and the fence. (That sentence had way too many commas...) When I had tied my shoe, I got curious as to what would come out if I just pressed the shutter button without looking.... and voila! Look closely and notice two of my team-mates playing doubles through the fence. Mariel, on the right, is serving.
I guess the point here is, this isnt the Mona Lisa of photography, but I think the story to it adds a few points.
P.S. - They did win the match, by the way.
