Each month, I choose a favorite image from all the images I captured. And each month, my favorite image is based on something totally different. I may choose the image based on technical qualities, emotional connections or the amount of creativity it took to capture the image. Or, I may use a combination of attributes. One month, it may be pure beauty that narrows down my selection. For August, I actually had to choose two images—both taken in Aspen, Colorado during the world-renowned Motherlode Volleyball Tournament.
The first image is a sporting image of Dana Camacho—a professional beach volleyball player. He has crazy, mad volleyball handling skills. He has many unorthodox ways of doing things on the court, but he’s managed to master them all. Some say that he’s the best defensive player to ever take to the court. I’m pretty sure he is also a professional trash talker and that makes watching Dana play ball very interesting. You either love him or hate him. There’s no in middle ground.
The second image is of my dad. He was playing in the men’s senior division for 60 and over. During his first match of the day, he fell and injured his shoulder. He needed to take a short break, but it was raining and cold… very cold. He made a impromptu camp in the middle of a thicket of indigenous trees to avoid the rain. He looked so cute, so I captured the moment. He recently had surgery to repair three ligaments that he tore in the fall.
These are my favorite images from August. Until next time, be positive, happy, and healthy, and don’t forget to be photographed.
