"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Soccer Photos for Youth Teams

The project:
Shoot two soccer games for youth club soccer, and share the photos with parents and other family members.

4 hours (2 hours shooting; 2 hours downloading, editing and uploading)

Why bother?
This continues to be a fun way to volunteer a skill I enjoy practicing. I'd be taking photos of my girls anyway, but shooting the whole team is rewarding because the other parents are happy to have action shots of their young athletes. In the digital age, it's no skin off my hide to provide these photos.

On another note: a players' grandpa, also a photographer, headed off to Bhutan for a month. Before leaving, he loaned me a very nice lens with which to experiment while he's gone. Super fun!

Worth it?
