Shadow Shot Sunday - Face Off

The shadowy world intrudes at many opportune times...can we spot and capture those opportunities? For Shadow Shot Sunday 2, the always lovely Patti captured this, researching for a story she wrote last week, two minor-league hockey players from the Bridgeport Sound Tigers visited a school in neighboring Seymour as a treat for successes in a book reading contest. A worthy reward...

This is a floor hockey faceoff between the players and students – and the sunburst seems to be the dropped 'puck' that the players wielding sticks are frantically competing for. A neat effect of sun, shadow, skill and luck in the gym :)

I love that flash of light that cuts through the scene and brings my attention to the masked player.

I guess hockey exists in many forms-ice, floor and rollerblades that I know of!

How nice that the sun complemented the shot!

The burst of light suggests the sun is the puck. Great photo.

Too bad it's not ice hockey--oh, wait! You're probably sick of ice by now!

This is a floor hockey. At least, in Sweden and it is very famous.

We have a final league next weekend and unfortunately, Stockholm team just lost the final place today.

My dear GH is one of the best player in his days.

However, we are not discussing the game, right? LoL*

Great job Patti for sharing your pix.

Hugs from DaBox...
