Day 258 - Four Square

Ventured outside with my camera at recess time. Caught this young man getting ready to throw the ball in his opponent's square. Four square is a popular outdoor game at our school. Kids of all ages play and it often evokes very lively debates. They have chosen to invent their own rules citing the "real" rules as boring. So the "new & improved" version includes fireballs, slammers and life-saving.

Terrific action shot! I like that you got the painted lines in the shot and the depth of field helps separate the boy from the background nicely.

You can just sense the movement that's about to occur. Great shot!

That is exactly what I thought - you captured the anticipation of the boy about to shoot! Awesome shot.

I'll echo the others - nice one.

Love this shot too! Like what the others said, one could really sense the boy taking a shot next. Brilliant!
