Redwood vs. Justin Siena Track and Field

with 2 comments

Redwood High School Track and Field

Last Thursday I decided to try my hand at Track and Field photography, so I headed over to the Redwood vs. Justin-Siena meet. The Redwood boys and girls won, although it was hard to tell without reading the Marin Independent Journal the next morning. I had to hunt for the scores at the bottom of the sports page, meaning, I guess, that Track and Field is low on the high school sports hierarchy. I’m not sure why. After I figured out what was going on, I found the experience enjoyable. What was new me was seeing boys and girls out there on the same field. That’s a welcome change from my day.

Maybe high school Track and Field isn’t a popular spectator sport because individual events are scattered all over the field. Some, like discuss and shot put, were almost impossible for fans to see from the Redwood stands. I really don’t follow big-time track events, but maybe the action is made available to fans on big screens like you see at football games.

It took me awhile to get my bearings, but I did manage to get a few shots I like. Getting things into sharp focus is always an issue for me, the same problem I had at the Redwood football games last year. Actually, I found track a little easier because I knew where the athletes were headed. With football, you never know where the play will end up.
