A dance routine broke out

Every news photographer that is going to succeed in the field learns quickly the niche serendipity occupies in that profession. It doesn’t mean one can rely on that to make a photo on the assignment. Usually it is back that on the light table, now on the screen where one needs to carefully look at the images with an open mind. That means step out side the assignment and look for other ‘happenings’ in the images.
At this Vergennes – Middlebury high school soccer game the actual photo which make the sports page was this one which provided some levity when I started thinking about the “Alley Cat” tune put your left leg in… Photos are to tell what is going on but to also amuse and lift up from the mundane.Vergennes-Middlebury VG soccerVergennes High School, Vergennes, Vermont 10/15/2008

About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
