Each season I seem to end up with hundreds if not thousands of pictures of our volleyball teams. Each year I like to dig through all the different pictures and pick my favorites. Here they are for the 2010 season.
Hands down, my favorite picture from this last season is this one. This is our 14s Purple team, pretty much just being themselves. Sure they are posing for a picture, but no one told them to bunch up and climb on each other the way they did. They just did what any good team will do. They were all just being themselves, and doing it together as a team.
The rest of my favorites pretty much all tie for second place. So they are in no particular order. They are all pictures that I just liked the way it turned out. I don’t know if it is the expression on the players face, the lighting, or both. Like everything else in life - you either like it, or you don’t - these pictures I just liked.
Three of these players were founding members of our club. The fourth when she joned a year later fit in so well is just seems like she had been here from the beginning. This picture was taken mid-season when they were all still having fun and enjoying playing volleyball. I liked this picture because it reminds me that there was a time when they were having fun being together on a club volleyball team.
I looked through a lot of pictures trying to find one where Bridget is not smiling. I don’t have very many.
Rebecca has a beautiful smile that she often trys to hide. Personally I think she is afraid that if she lets on how much she enjoys playing volleyball we will make her stop. Don’t tell her, but no matter how she tries to hide that smile - her eyes give her away, everytime.
Something is wrong with our volleyballs…
On the volleyball court, Candace is as intense as they come. Off the court, she spends most of her time with either an outragous laugh or a covergirl smile on her face. I loved this picture because it seemed to catch her somewhere in between the three.
