Competition – Project52

As the mom of three boys, you would think that last week’s Project52 theme, competition, would have been a breeze. Just bring along the camera to the court or the field and I’m set, right?

Wrong. Oddly enough, after many years of back-to-back sports seasons, all three of my guys took the winter off.

The good news is that all of this sudden downtime in our schedule is getting the kiddos to reconnect with each other (and me). I’ve never played so many after school basketball games of “Pig.” And, the boys love to play “Knockout” on the driveway.

So, it turns out, all I had to do was go out on the driveway to get my competition pictures.

While I got a lot of fun action shots, my favorites are actually of the “Rock, Paper, Scissors” they played to decide who goes first in their game of one-on-one basketball.

The hands are filthy from playing with a damp, dirty ball on the driveway and for some reason, that game always gives them the giggles.

This Project52 work is fitting so nicely with my New Year’s Resolution to take more photos of my kids in “everyday life.” Very fun.

Oh, and, my close up got picked for a Moms with Cameras favorite of the week. Woohoo!
