My friend George teaches motorcycle-riding; he also plays hockey in an adult league. I went to one of George's hockey games recently to get an old stick for my Halloween costume. While there, I enjoyed watching George and his teammates play an exciting hockey game.
Afterward I realized it'd be fun to go to one of their games with a camera. It's difficult to capture images in sports as fast as hockey; most of your pictures are of empty space where something happened a split-second earlier but moved on while you're composing the shot.
Here are a few that turned out okay. (That's George in the fourth photograph.)
Hockey is one of the few sports I prefer live - it's so visceral!ReplyDelete
You're right -- I didn't realize it until I went to my first game. I got hooked. I try to explain it to other people but they don't get it. You have to experience the speed, talent and excitement first-hand.Delete
I love the motion of these photos! Hockey was one of the few sports I liked and wasn't completely terrible at! It makes me happy to see people enjoying it!ReplyDelete
Me, too. I can't skate so I'm also "terrible at" playing but I admire the strength and skill of those who can play and enjoy the speed and visual images of it.Delete
I went to a hockey game once and it was pretty intense (Devils vs. Penguins, I think???). These photos are great! I'm excited to hear more about your Halloween costume!ReplyDelete
Hockey is one of my favorite sports to watch! Your photos turned out great!ReplyDelete
