Beanbag toss

Quick post.  I was at the Honolulu Zoo Birthday celebration yesterday for wild art.  You’d expect WILD wild art, being that I was at the zoo, but instead I came away with a very interesting image that I was very happy with.  Children were tossing beanbags into a cardboard hole as a game to win prizes.  I lined up behind the the cardboard and waited for the right elements to be within the circles.

Five-year-old Ryen Adaro watches her beanbag throw enter the hole during the Honolulu Zoo's centennial birthday celebration Sunday, August 30, 2009 on the zoo grounds.  The event, hosted by the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children, featured local entertainers as well as games and activities for the whole family.  (Jamm Aquino/Honolulu Star-Bulletin).  Canon EOS 1D Mark III, EF 70-200 f2.8L IS at 170mm, Exposure mode:  Manual, 1/125 sec @ f4.5, 200 ISO, daylight whitebalance.

    I love this feature of the Star’s web site and thank you for doing it. I only wish that you updated more often. It would also be nice if you limited yourself to equipment that I also use:)
    Thanks and keep it up!

    Thanks for the compliment, Scott. And as for equipment, I always tell people it’s the vision and not the gear:) I’ve come away with photos I like from a cellphone! Of course, having a fast lens or a camera that has a high fps rate helps, but my point is that everyone has their own way of seeing the world, and no matter whether you’re using a Canon Mark III or an old manual Pentax K1000 film body, the resulting photos are Scott Fuglei’s window into the world. Keep shooting!
