life through a viewfinder

shootin’ pool

Posted in Uncategorized by Emily on June 20, 2008

It was raining when I got to work today, so when I was sent out on a feature hunt, I was less than thrilled. Rain means everyone in Owensboro goes inside and shuts the door, and it often feels impossible to find something good. After about a half an hour of driving around in the rain with no luck, I decided to cash in my idea of shooting senior citizens playing pool at the senior center. While this may not have produced the most visually interesting pictures, the stories you hear while you’re with these guys more than make up for the lack of cool, flashing lights and bar background.
