another shot

Today I got another shot to shoot girls softball. I did about as well as yesterday, so I’m really just hoping to get plenty more practice in.

I also spent the early afternoon on another feature hunt, when I ran into a fisherman. He taught me the basics of fishing, so now I’d really like to get a license and a pole and take a stab at it. It looked fun!

It’s amazing to me how much feature hunting is really good luck. Obviously knowing where to go and what kinds of things to look for is helpful, but… for the most part, it’s luck. If you go to the park, hoping to find someone playing on the playground or fishing in the pond, it’s all chance if there’s someone there or not. I’ve been fortunate enough to find kids on both occasions. Whoever says taking pictures of kids is cheating, you’re wrong. Kids are tough to shoot, especially since they won’t stop looking at your camera.

Yesterday was also my first encounter with a softball game. Shooting softball games requires practice, so I’m eager for another chance at it.
