    Adding words to football

    Sorry I don't post much any more. I do lurk from time to time and still enjoy seeing the sports pics.

    I take so many football photos over the season I just don't know what to post in here any more. This last season I did do some quotes and text on a few photos and the response was overwhelming with some of them. They were moments that touched me and inspired me to do something a bit different. Definitely these are no your normal action shots. These are your love, respect and honor shots.

    I was going to upload a few others, but man can it be any harder to upload now?

    1. A high school team who was put through the wringer after they finally got their first win. I was so proud of the coach and his team.

    2. Two brothers getting ready to take the field for their last game of their collegiate career.

    I see that happen a lot. Someone posts and describes their pictures, and their description of #4 matches the third picture, and there is no 5th picture to go with their description..... In this case the Mom picture wasn't there until I hit refresh, which I've gotten into the habit of doing while on this board.

    Re: Adding words to football

    Julie you know how much I admire your work and these two are perfect examples of why I respect you so much. I have watched your progress over the last few years and it is truly amazing. I understand your frustration with the new posting procedure I think we are all struggling with it.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Re: Adding words to football

    One of my faves. This is the one of the past all-american QB picking up the present QB up out of the dirt when he took an enormous blow.Adding words to football-i-jhfjfrm-l.jpg
