Ricky used to play basketball in the national league not so long ago, but I can hardly recognise him. This was Ricky's 4th trip to Parnngurr in the past 18 months, and the kids just love it

Truly a lovely photograph! all the different colour balls, at different heights in their bounces... and the littlest girl bending way down at the end of the line. I LOVE this.

The desert winds were very strong, I had trouble keeping my hat on, but it made for a good excuse when I tried shooting for goal.

Ricky visits many remote communities each year, and runs training sessions. I think that is different to a coaching role, (yes I know I did call him a coach earlier). His main role is more about self esteem, goal setting and achieving.

There are other pics, that I will put up through the communities moblog site, which should happen on 14th Nov. Keep an eye out cause there are some really special ones with the little ones getting knocked on the head with the basketballs they are bouncing.

I *love* this shot, with the DOF - HL worthy IMO. Everyone looks so focused!

Hm...I'm sure I can throw another acronym in there if I tried.

Lol. The penny has just dropped. HL I though refered to my Dad who has that as his initials.

I thought that i'd chopped off the feet a little too much, but all those colourful b.balls do give it a bit of punch.

Geodyne says:

The balls, the two-dimensionalness of the line and the DOF are what make the shot for me.
