7-1-16 USAU Open Day 1 "First Tags"
On this first day at the 2016 US Open, 1,914 photos were shot. Not a bad figure, considering that included covering six partial (usually halves) games over a reasonable 3 rounds of play for the day. And for one reason or another, photos taken throughout the day get tagged. Usually it's a shot of an amazing play that we hope we somehow are able to capture some essence of its physicality, beauty, grace, strength or potency within the context of the game. But sometimes, it's just for at the simplicity and beauty and grace that the kinetics of sports and athletes offer. Or maybe it's a play of someone new, unfamiliar and the thought, "don't loose this one" comes to mind. For whatever reason, here is a subset of the photos that were tagged from the day. We have a little storyline that goes with each of the shots. But what we really hope is that you and others have theirs, and that this photo as well as the full gallery to come triggers stories for you and others to enjoy for time to come.Read More
