    Professional, amateur or recreational, show us people involved in sports!

    Many thanks to Kestrana for her theme suggestion!

    I know I’m going to need an ObO for this one and possibly for the next one too. I’ll be out in the high sierra stocking up on amazing photography opportunities.

    If it makes you feel any better, my birthday is often on Thanksgiving.

    Yeah, not being a very sporty person, this kind of theme just does not remotely get me enthusiastic, and I’m not really sure what, if anything, I’ll be able to shoot for it. But I try to stay as neutral as possible when scheduling the themes.

    This. But I shelled out $60 for a scanner to participate in a theme–I’ll be damned if I let my aversion to sports keep me from this one. Anyone know what sports are played in the summertime? Ice hockey? 😕

    Elsinore you just ran a fun run. That would work. Swimming at the beach or pool is also a sports activity. Hiking, horseback riding, playing croquet on the lawn, frisbee with the dog, the pile of neglected workout equipment being utilized as a coatrack…could even argue dance as a sport and use belly dance pictures especially if you ever go to competition.

    Go old school. Knuckle down with a steely. Sharpen some lawn darts, draw a cirlce around the neighbors cat. Introduce the kids to the rodeo. Bolt your point/shoot camera to the side of a paintball marker. Visit the local dragstrip or a local high school soccer game.

    Bicycling is a sport right? So if I get pictures with the handle bars or front forks and the road in front of me that would be good? Or maybe a self portrait while riding. A myspace angle should show the bike and road too.

    I’d actually love taking shots during runs, but it’s too cumbersome with my big cameras, and I can’t run and take pictures at the same time anyway. I’ll figure something out. My sister has custody of the family jarts, and she has a 4th of July get together, so we’ll see. Thankfully, no belly dance competitions 😆 I’m sure I’d get lapped by some pretty young thing 😉

    Sure thing. Hm…that actually gives me other ideas, now that I think about it.

    There has to be little league baseball in your city. Go and shoot that.
