Pregame

About a week ago I shot a bunch of hockey games for a local youth team.  It was alot of fun - hockey is such a cool sport and the kids did a great job.  Over the course of five games I shot about 2800 photos, of which around 800 were worth sharing with the kids and parents on the team.  For just $20 they got some killer photos of their kids in action all on one DVD.  :-)

As it turns one of the pre-game rituals of the guys helping this team, I guess these were the team managers, who prepped the equipment and otherwise took care of sticks, pads, etc. before, during and after the game, was to stack up practice pucks in various ways.  The first time I saw this I realized I needed to get a shot of it so I quickly switched lenses from my sports and action lens (Canon 70-200 f2.8) to my favorite wide angle (Canon 10-22) and shot this.  It's still amazing to me how close you can get to something with really wide angle lenses and still get all sorts of background and surrounding stuff in the image.
