How many me's do you see?

The Terrell Daily Photo Facebook page almost has 500 fans. I added some photos from Tuesdays Terrell vs Forney baseball game to Facebook and iHigh.

Don J., photographer/writer/story teller for the Terrell Tribune has a neat post up about baseball photography on his personal site, East Texas Photo.  He posted his view of the same action I posted yesterday.  His last post was a play at first base that I didn't post yesterday, but its the one below.  It was already getting pretty dark, so my shot isn't that great.  It looks like we snapped at the exact same time.  Check out the chalk coming up off the back foot of the runner in both pics.

Don says photography is competitive, and I guess it is. I am always thinking, I wonder what Don's shot looks like.   But, Don always has tips or settings that can help get a better picture. He also has a professional site with some awesome photos for sale.

creative shot!
you really should pass out a business card at the games and sell your shots to parents...set up a website for them to view them and purchase!

Jim, how neat it is to see these photos that the two of you took, side by side. Thanks for the link!

Love the chalk flying up! I'm always wondering the same things, 'What does his shot look like? What's his shutter speed set at?' One of the things I really like about Flickr is that you can check out most people's camera stats and learn how they captured a particular shot.
