Queens of the Diamond: Pre-game Ritual
Summer is here when the girls take to the field. I spent the weekend photographing my daughter and her team hit, pitch, throw, and catch their way into the quarterfinals of the Queens of the Diamond, Division 1 fastpitch tournament in Brantford, Ontario. Sports photography is not my forte but I set out to capture some special moments for my daughter and her teammates. I will post some of the best images here on Greg’s Blog for all to see. I hope you decide to follow along as I chronicle the girls’ journey while expanding my photographic range.
“Pre-game Ritual“, the first in the “Queens of the Diamond” series depicts the Girls of Summer huddled together moments before the first pitch. Every team takes a second to block out the noise, get the adrenaline flowing, and set their focus on the battle at hand. The photograph seemed an appropriate starting point for this project. I hope you enjoy the images I’ll post throughout the summer and look forward to any feedback you may have.
