| p.1 #1 · Softball: Australia women beat Japan ?!?!? |
A little bit of international softball last weekend in ….. Australia?!?
Incredibly, the Australian women’s team beat Japan, largely thanks to a pair of horrendous fielding errors at the end of the game – you need to pick up the ball if you want to throw it, and it really helps if the other player can catch.
Softball is a bit out of the norm for my shooting, but I thought I’d give it a shot. A couple things to keep in mind. The ballpark is in Australia, and while it looked like a nice (and busy) set of diamonds to play or watch a game, the set up was not photo friendly. We had to stay out of the bullpen (makes sense with the power of the pitchers), but that put us halfway down the fence between first/third base and the outfield fence. This did not help with shooting infield action. I also forgot how small a softball diamond is, which made life interesting with my 500 and 1D mark III. A very small selection from a fairly repetitive set of different players shot for stock.
Comments and criticism most welcome.
#1 No crop – shooting through the home plate fence with the 500.
#2 Cropped a bit – shooting down the third base line from a different zip code.
#3 Cropped a bit – shooting down the first base line from far away
#4 Not thinking straign – cropped from a vertical shot when I should have turned to horizontal
#5 And the problem with shooting the infield from up the first base line…
