I'd like to introduce a whole new chapter and series to this site, called 'Narrative Photos'. The whole idea behind it is based off a story/connection I saw before I took the shot. These stories will be posted maybe once a month or so (maybe even more frequently).
A few days ago, while me and my friends were out shooting we came across this basketball court (which at the time, there was no playing). Eventually, what seemed to be a father and son came to shoot some hoops. As I watched this kid aim endlessly even after missing a bunch, it reminded me of one thing, persistance.
With his father semi-watching on the sideline, he didn't disappoint with his effort. See, persistance is a funny thing. To me, it seems when we're younger we have a bunch of it. We'd try and try and try again. Then when we get older, we kind of drift away from it and get discouraged over the smallest things. Watching him reminded me, even after every miss, we always have the opportunity to shoot again and again and again.
Now, whether this kid was simply just shooting for his enjoyment or not. Just by watching him it gave me an insight.
