Every so often I'll wander into a sporting event and can't help but take some photos. Typically I work the crowds around the event and photograph the spectators, but every so often I'll aim my camera at the event itself. These are those photos. And as always, all these sports photos are taken on film.

I like the frenzy of shadows in this particular photo. There was large building with many glass windows across the street. The windows were reflecting the sun back down to the road, which is why some shadows are going the in opposite directions.
