View 112: Basketball Fan

Webster’s defines a Fan as an enthusiastic devotee (as of a sport or a performing art) usually as a spectator.  I heartily agree on the enthusiastic part as has anyone who gets to attend a college basketball game.  Which I did last week when I took in the Syracuse University Orange Men’s Big East Basketball game against the University of Connecticut (UConn) Huskies. Behind me was this young fan who came dressed to cheer on the Orange.

I took this with the best camera I had at the time, my iPhone.

    Scott, I’d be tickled to get a photo that good from my Canon Powershot. (The fault, um, is not in the camera.) This great image proves a favorite thesis of mine. Great shots come from doing the best that can be done with the materials and tools at hand. This is truly endearing.
