Sports Day at work - some of these guys take their 3 on 3 basketball pretty darn seriously! Equally so with the flag football later in the day. (Gotta understand that some of these gents were collegiate athletes at the Air Force Academy, which may explain the "taking it seriously" part.)

Significant (!) crop, and overexposed, but I was trying to get faces and to do that I figured I had to seriously overexpose. But maybe I shouldn't have turned it up quite so many notches. :-)

Will not break 6. I've lost the bubble on how to do that, I think. I have also, it appears, lost any particular "style". Ah well. Maybe it's just a very very very long phase I'm going through. Think?

Well - beat my average! (Or came close, anyway.) Finished bottom 50%! But in the end, I did make people laugh, and that's good, right?
