Baseball Bashing!

October 06, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

For many years now I have had the pleasure of photographing high speed action shots at my son's baseball games. I have learned to anticipate where the plays might actually occur, and have trained my camera eye to follow the ball. When you are looking through the lens at a ball off the bat coming at you full speed you learn to get out of the way, and very quickly. In years of photographing I have never once been bashed by a baseball, and a quite proud that I have developed a quick get out of the way reflex when that ball is coming in to cause impending pain.

Today that changed. Facing double headers for the day I photograhed the first game without incident and got some really cool shots that I am sharing with you here in this blog. I decided to sit down and watch the second game with the parents and my friends and let my husband photo the second game because I  had bashed my toe earlier that morning in my rush to get ready for the game, and it was quite swollen, possibly broken, and it hurt! So, I am watching my son pitch and talking with friends at the same time when all of the sudden a foul ball is hit and everyone is yelling "watch out"! When I finally realized what was going on it was too late, and I got bashed right on the top of my head with a flying baseball.

So, from now on I will be looking through the lens for those nasty speed demons that inflict horrible pain! My reflexes are dysfuntional without my camera planted firmly against my face and eye!

Enjoy the pics!
