In the photo, water polo players stand for the national anthem before the game. It's strange to me the national anthem is played before a high school sporting event. I remember my uncles, all of whom served in World War II, telling me there was no national anthem played before major league ball games in the 1950s. The umpire said "play ball" and that's how they started the game. I find myself thinking of that often while I stand through the anthem.
Have a good holiday, friends.

I've been shooting a lot of prep sports lately, especially playoffs. I took this one Friday, after the Mustangs won the game and the league title. When I snapped the shot, the game clock had just expired and the team was gathering to shake hands at midfield with the other team. 
After not finding work for so long, I'm very grateful for the work I'm doing. And when I can get a good image, it's so damn fun.
Hope you have a great week.

Costume and Winning

Hi. I took a couple shots i really like: Natalie, dressed as a nun strolling along Hermosa Beach on Halloween, and Skylar, after her school's volleyball team upset a cross town rival last night and won a share of first place for the first time since 1987.
