Shoot Me NowLINES

I can’t believe there is only one more day of the April Photo Challenge.  Will we all get P.E.D (Post-Event Depression) on May 1?  Or would it be “Photo-Event Depression?”

Today’s Challenge is “Lines.”  I began by taking pictures of the painted lines at my son’s track meet today.  But then I was thrilled beyond belief to capture this shot of him flying over a hurdle.  My guy is on the left, racing over the lines to ultimately get to THE finish line.

Taken with an old, failing Samsung Fascinate phone, which has a delay that is never the same after snapping the picture.  How I got this, I will never know!

  • This is fantastic! Doesn’t much matter how or why your phone allowed you to capture this, I’m just thrilled that it did. I love action shots and this one is just WOW!

    Who cares how it happened!  What an awesome shot!

    I hope he did well.

  • I took photos for weekly newspapers back in the 1990s and those action sports shots always were a challenge. I don’t know if I ever got one that good even with a “professional” camera. Very, very nice.

  • Great action shot. Did your son win?

  • It is a great shot and is clear as day when enlarged! Great capture!

  • That is an amazing photo!  Really wonderful, Katherine!

  • Wow, Katherine, this is an amazing shot! I cannot believe you were able to get it at exactly the right time, and so clear. Amazing. 🙂

  • Oh snap, Katherine! That’s an AWESOME picture. I am SUPER impressed!

    “Photo-Event Depression?” – Ahahahaha, probably! 

  • Do you like my shorts?

    Absolutely incredible that you managed to get this photo with your cell phone camera! It’s terrific, and really nice memento of your son. I’m amazed by hurdelers. I don’t understand the coordination involved in running at full speed and then timing your jump. I can barely walk without falling over.

  • Unbelievable shot! And I’m so impressed with your son’s ability to jump hurdles. I fall down while standing in place!! Again, really incredible, Katherine!

  • For a cell phone shot, this is fabulous Katherine!  Perfect area, too, to get a lot of lines. (So, did your son win??)  😉

    • Actually no…. he can win in the 100 meter hurdle, which I haven’t been able to see yet…this was the 300…but he did well!

    I tried to get a photo of my favorite football field goal line, but to no avail. Twenty years ago, I could have talked my way in! 🙂 Great photo. Woo Hoo for your son! Congrats!

  • WOW!  Great shot!  I think I’d break something if I tried to jump those hurdles.
