It looks serious! My kids are having T-ball at school. I have no idea what is it - but they say it is like baseball. I don't know the rules of baseball. It is hard to raise kids in forein country. I tryed to interest them in soccer - they said - it is for girls?!? That is not fair!
I like the photos - there is this pro- attidude in them. Stronger, Faster, Higher type of attitude - not just everyday throwing ball thing...

These are cool! I'd like to try that as it looks like fun. I've only ever seen cricket batting cages here. Must look out for those ones :)

Wonderful shots! And really great shadows.

Robin said...

Great shots. She's got the stance down and everything. I love girls who aren't afraid to be sporty. Things here are still way too divided along gender lines :(. I'm fighting it with my own kids, but it's an uphill battle when you feel like you're fighting on your own.

I'm like Carletta, never did try a batting cage.


You found a neat perspective to shoot the cages, along with those cool shadows.
