Play in games at Ransom Everglades: 4/23

side poss-1

Belen vs Miami Country Day play in game. As always, I had a great time working on my vision of sports photography - take the shot to the left, an idea to use strong vertical elements to separate and , thus, augment the players. I think it works - at least - as art if not as portraiture. I hope you and your parents enjoy these efforts.

I selected an unusual number of end shots - the handshakes, because while this game was won handily by Belen the warmth of the congratulations was remarkable and shows two teams of fine young men. To me: the very definition of sport.

Now, take a moment to comment on my work, my site, even the insanity of my vision if you like! Just scroll down below the bottom photo:

The last of the semi final games. St. Thomas Aquinas vs Cooper City. The result set up the battle between the magnificent teams from Belen Jesuit and St. Thomas in the state Championships.

The boys of Cooper City played hard and fought the battle well - as they always do…. the game was exciting for me and the results are here.


Now we speed on to the final match………..

Another season comes to an emotional close - thank God for club play so I won't go into shock. I spend so much time around chorine I'm sure I'm addicted.

I've put up some 285 photos - a lot of warm up shots and the like in an effort to get something for everyone. There are a lot for Belen, a great bunch of guys who I have neglected in the past, I plan to get to know them better and I'm looking forward to seeing them as Whitecaps .


Congratulations to St. Thomas! It was a great game between two very, very fine teams. Both teams should be proud of the verve, the spirit, the strength of their play so the "congratulations" is really shared .
