The "Ultimate" of Sports, Day 215




I chose this photo from an ultimate frisbee game because I think a lot of moms can relate to this particular moment in time. You are sitting on the bench and watching your child swing that bat, shoot at the hoop, slap the puck, and kick the soccer ball and quietly wishing upon all wishes that your kid scores that point. How many of us hold our breath and just hope our kid doesn't mess up?

I chose this photo because it shows the moment that I began to hold my breath as that frisbee started heading towards my daughter (white shirt) - just praying she didn't drop it. Sadly, I was holding my breath and forgot to snap the shutter button when she caught it!!!

What a great action shot, Dot! Love it! Even though you didn't get the catch, this one is just as good, maybe even better!! Lots of light and color here too. Like the looks on their faces. Perfect!!

That's a wonderful shot! It's probably better than one of her catching it!

I know this feeling! In fact both feelings - the forgetting to press the button one as well!
