50 With A 50 – Week 45

Week 45 of my #50WithA50 and I took my camera to a hurling practice in St John’s. Maybe a 50mm prime is not the best lens for sports photography but isn’t that the challenge of this project. I decided to focus on the details like this image of a sliotar on the ground. Yes my Canadian friends that’s what the ball is called. First time in years I’d held a hurley and I was surprised I could still remember how to pick up a ball and shoot. These days the only shooting I do is with a camera. By the way, the front of my 50mm fell off again. I got it back on but if it insists on falling off regularly it looks like the last 5 weeks of the challenge is going to be a challenge. Tough little lens though, still working after falling apart 3 times. Sometimes the simplest things are the best.
