Attended my nephew’s intramural basketball game last week. The boys are in their early teens which, is a physically ackward time in a boy’s life. What they lacked in grace, they made up in determination and youthful energy. My nephew (dribbling the ball in the photo below) had his fan club in attendance as many of his family made the trip to the game to cheer him and his teammates on.
The game was tied at half time and it went down to the wire with my nephew’s team wearing orange pulled it out at the end by 2 points. After the game, the family celebrated the winner in a nearby restaurant.
The middle school gymnasium was quite the challenge to photograph in. Even using the fast Nikon 70-200VR f/2.8 lens, ISOs climbed past 4000 at shutter speeds between 1/250 and 1/400th of a second.
