They say, bowling is a sport immitation for beer drinkers, chatters and mums with kids 🙂 Well, I won’t risk saying things like that, but in case of a casual freindly meeting the sport part is definitely not the most important thing 😛
On Friday Xinyi and her colleagues went bowling — taking me along. As I have injured my right hand that day, I played the deadweight and enjoyed shooting photos only. I took my new toy — the 20mm Flektogon on a Praktica and two rolls of Tmax 3200 film. I exposed it at ISO800 and 1600 resp. then flash-scanned it using my 300D. I screwed the flash backlight and didn’t notice it till I had the scans loaded in my PC, so the quality stinks a good bit, I’ll redo it if I find some free time.
So, this is the bunch `playing’ (notice the importance of social relations in sport):
Some actual bowling shots:
one can’t be always perfect:
Let it roll!
and a well deserved cocktail-bar evening afterwards 🙂
One photo directly from 300D — Xinyi’s portrait
More photos will come – keep an eye on my party-photos gallery (right now only a full set of b/w photos, color shots yet to come)
