Know how to tell you’ve been shooting one sport for too long?
When you stop snapping pix of the people playing that activity, because you’re bored.
I’ve been shooting disc golf ever since my younger son became enthralled with the sport in late 2007. That’s a whole lot of photos of people flinging plastic circles into metal baskets.
The last two times I put my Nikon D700 to my eye when disc golf was being played, though, I was mesmerized by the action of the discs approaching and landing in the chains or tray of the basket. Those putts that players hope will be birdies and pars have a fluid motion that I kept trying to capture.
It was a welcome change!
Know how to tell when you’ve really lost your . . . ahem . . . focus?
When you’re shooting discs going into baskets using burst mode. There’s no turning back after that, I’m afraid.
Hopefully, I’ve gone far enough down this road, though, that I’m ready to go back to shooting the real disc golf action again:
And, of course, the occasional wildflower . . . or two . . . or many.
