a few shots from last sunday, i did alot of shooting that day, i did volleyball, some soccer, i few shots of Martina Navratilova, and some break dancing, and then some flag football. well i have beenshooting alot of graduations so i needed to get some sports in.



these guys were awesome, and extremely funny what a great show! i know the last one isn't the best sport type shot i left as it was shot to show everyone a lil bit of new orleans.

There's some terrific timing displayed in these shots, John....particularly on the one with the young man's nose touching. I'm assuming these guys are a street troupe who do their show anytime they can get a crowd? Nice shooting, but from your introduction, I can only ask, "Where's the shots of Martina break-dancing?" :-)

Great timing. Man, I had no idea theyre still break dancing. I thought that movie, Electric Boogaloo did the whole genre in. LOL

hello everyone,

thanks for the kind words, i have to tell you the 40d's 6.5 frames a sec was the only way, i didn't just keep the shutter held down i took maybe 3-4 shots let up and tried to get a different timing. these guys were spinning very fast, which is amazing because none of them were teenagers. i have to give them alot of credit! and it was an enjoyable show!
