hail mary, for the hell of it.




when your tippy toes aren't good enough you take that chance and pull the camera away from your face, raise it just a bit, and pray. hence the name hail mary. all three of these images followed that same sequence as i shot the mountain heritage parade for fun before going to work. so i find myself questioning; what does it mean when i shoot better pictures when the camera is away from my face. hell maybe if i were to close my eyes all together they would get better still.

Technical question: Is it still called the Hail Mary when you hold the camera down by your shoes and point it up towards the sky? I do that probably just as often...

The quality of a photographer is in their editing as much as it is in where and when they point their camera. Especially in the age of these newfangled motor drives. Good choices. Especially with that little baton twirler.
