Prequel to the Sequel

Wheelchair basketball

I had to wake up at 6:30 in the morning yesterday to shoot wheelchair basketball practice. I picked noon classes for a reason, so i could sleep, so i wasnt entirely excited to wake up this early. But i had a lot of fun shooting these guys. They play the game different then people who walk, so it was interesting to see their technique and how they moved around so fast. Their chairs also take a pounding when they play, they gotta be built like tanks. I cant wait to shoot them tomorrow at their tournament, but again, gotta wake up early. oh well.
