Wanting to photograph disc golf usually is a no-brainer for me. I enjoy trying to capture the athleticism of the disc golfers, particularly the #2 son, the Mister, and, occasionally, the #1 son.
But take that athleticism and couple it with Halloween costumes? There’s no need to ask me twice!
Last Saturday’s special Halloween mini disc golf tournament was on a private course in and around the homes of two avid players, Marcus and Steve. The participants were told to dress in costume or they wouldn’t earn their payouts.
That didn’t mean they had to play dressed up, fortunately. As you can see from the top part of Matt’s costume, he’d probably still be on the course if he had worn his bobble-headed Grim Reaper apparel while he was throwing.
The same might have been true of Sam and his rather disturbing clown and partner outfit. Is it just me or does this look wrong on so many levels?
Billy, though, did play in costume, and his get-up was the hit of the tournament! Given his love of oldies music, it wasn’t surprising that Billy would come dressed as the devil with the blue dress on. Mitch Ryder, eat your heart out!
I shot with my new/used, discontinued Nikon f/2.8 35-70mm lens, because I wanted to concentrate more on taking people pix vs. action shots. The lens doesn’t really focus fast enough for great action photos, but I was able to snap a few that I liked.
The 35-70 did a much-better job capturing the costumed throng.
As well as yet another photo of that devil wearing his blue dress, black socks, and velcro shoes!
