Webster defines serendipity as "the ..... phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for." I was shooting my seventh straight Holyoke Giants game tonight when "an agreeable thing not sought for" turned up. I already had in the bag several shots I knew would be good, and I was a bit bored shooting the same red shirts in the same ballfield for seven straight nights. So I decided I could waste some time trying new things...one of which was lining up a shot showing the pitcher, umpire, runner, and second baseman all in a row collapsed telescopically. Just as I prepared to snap the shot, the shortstop started a planned pickoff. The result was the following shot. I'll probably experiment with "straightening" the shot, but I kinda like it is for now: Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) Shot at 1/320, f4.0, 800iso using the 280mm Nikon 80-200 w/Kenko 1.4x teleextender combination.
