It seems to me that a good photograph sends a message. But how we interpret an image is personal and may trigger laughter or tears, fear or peacefulness, pride or shame.
When photographing sports I follow the ball and try to capture those elusive award-winning scores. It’s a rush for the photographer and a proud moment in time for the parents to treasure.
But not every photo is a winning point or dramatic touchdown. As in this example during a girl’s water polo game at Lodi High in 2015, sometimes you simply stop time and you never really know what was happening. This photo is one of those. Consider commenting below and share the words that this picture puts in your brain.
