Advantage In

Fenced In

There is only one other phrase I like to hear more in tennis than "Great shot Anna!" It is "Ad-In". Standing for advantage-in, it means the serving team will win the game if they win the next point. Who doesn't want to hear this?

This is the fence where I play each week with my ALTA team. The picture pretty much explains it I think. I like that it is green and I love the lines. I didn't see behind me but I am sure the other ladies were wondering what the heck I was doing shooting so close to the fence.

Yet another "only Anna would notice the shot" shots. There's just a simple geometric beauty to this that is truly mesmerizing. Even though tit's only your second favorite thing to hear, "Great shot, Anna!" (Cuz "Ad-in" wouldn't make any sense"

The "Why is she/he taking a picture of THAT?" look is one we have to get used to. No answer you could give will make much sense to the non-photographer, so I usually just grin and shrug. Sometimes thick skin is as important as any equipment in your camera bag.

I am growing accustomed to people scratching their heads as I whip out my camera. This is a great shot.

This is so "you" :)

I agree with John, because I'm always getting those looks. It's best just to pretend there's no one around you.

Rebecca said...

Dude. It feels like I could reach through my screen and grab hold of the fence! Love that. :)

Mark said...

It looks like a set of eyes into the world. The slight fuzziness helps the mysterious feel.

Very cool stuff recently, Anna!

Mike said...

Great shot Anna! Just had to say that.

I love getting those looks but I got to admit I give them too. During our most recent ice storm there were three of us with camera's wandering over a frozen over park. I have to admit I would look at them every once in a while and say what are they taking a picture of. That is what makes this fun.

Happy Valentine's Day. Bet you can't wait until tomorrow!
