Focal Length:5.8mm
Shutter:1/0 sec
Camera:Canon PowerShot A590 IS

This photo reminds me of old black and white indie films where the filmmakers would have to shoot sports sequences from way back in the stands because they didn’t have legal permission to get up close to the players. Sometimes they’d use telephoto lenses to try to get up close but you could still feel the distance between the camera and the action. Its funny how the shots they ended up getting were more accurate to the actual experience of sitting in the stands and watching a game and yet somehow spatially alienating for the audience.
