Here’s a follow up on my previous post on “When should I carry my Nikon camera”? I suppose the best time to carry it is when I don’t have other things to carry like, a little boy. I love my grandson, but you just can’t shoot when you have him. He’s a handful as it is.
We went to the UH Men’s Volleyball match against University of the Pacific, but didn’t have my grandson. Thanks Jason for watching him. I took a few shots during the game, but nothing spectacular, as the Volleyball games are just not as exciting as the Basketball games.
It’s interesting, though, that the other sports don’t recognize the Kids Club like the Volleyball team does. In my sequence of shots, you’ll see a few shots of the team entering the court, “high fiveing” the kids of the Kid Club. It’s pretty cool to capture the players as they serve. When you go back to see the sequence of shots, you get to see their expressions, and how they hit the ball. It’s kinda like watching a golf swing. In the sequence, you’ll see #16, Sinisa Zarkovic, an Outside Hitter, during his serve. He is a very powerful hitter and server. You don’t want to get hit by his balls.
One of the athletic “teams” should be the UH Cheering Team. They put a lot of time into cheering for our players and spend just as much time on the playing field as the players. They also have to practice like our players, and work on their strength, too. In the sequence, you’ll see three shots of the girls lifted up by the guys. That takes a lot of skill, practice, and strength.
The last photo in the sequence is Rubberband Man. Rubberband Man, otherwise known as Alan Hackbarth, is a loyal fan of Men’s Volleyball and a former UH Football Player. He entertains the crowd during the breaks with his antics in the stands, heckling the other team, and dancing crazy on the steps. When you watch him, he kinda reminds me of Jim Carrey.
Here’s a video of him.
