We are pleased to announce that Tracy Hindle was chosen by Winter Photographics as the grand prize winner of a full day pass to our upcoming photography event, Persistent Vision. The photo had to be taken in Cochrane Alberta (Around Town). Here is what Tracy had to say about the making of the image:
Cochrane Lanes Bowling Alley – when making this image I originally had one thing in mind. A lady I know from bowling was turning 90, yes 90, and she still bowls AMAZINGLY! She beats me almost every time. I wanted to make a special birthday card depicting different aspects of bowling and headed down to the lanes to take pictures. End result – she was thrilled. The bonus for me once I got there was the challenge of taking action pictures of the ball hitting the pins. Trying to freeze that moment when there is ultimate contact with low lighting and no flash. I hope to go back and try again, and again, as I really enjoyed it.
When I saw your contest looking for pictures from “Around Cochrane” I wanted to submit something that I thought no one else would think of and possibly had not already been done before. Dare to be different in my interpretation of – A “round” Cochrane, I thought this picture captures not only the beauty of the balls, but the essence of the game with the allies and the pins just out of focus.
