On Saturday, I shot swimming for my friend Thom Kendall who was out of town on another job. I grew up as a swimmer, so being back in a pool is usually a lot of fun for me. Just the smell of chlorine and the humidity brings back memories. Shooting it can be a challenge. How many shots of athletes breathing out of the side of their mouths can one take? So I usually try to look around for different angles. The UMASS pool has a nice balcony just above the starting blocks and I thought it would be nice for the backstrokers. It worked.
