    This is my new body of work.
    To my mates and me (we are students at Plymouth University) football is not about the million pound sport that occupies a lot of people's Saturday afternoons. Don't get me wrong, we are all fanatical fans of our respective local clubs (up the Cherries!), but for us footie is a game that gets played in the park by about 8 of us on a sunny afternoon after lectures, or after I've spent the morning in a dark room.
    It's about enjoying the summer and having a good time and a bit of a laugh with good mates. It's good honest fun, it helps keep us fit, and most importantly, it's absolutely free! It's true, the best things in life are free.
    I have tried to capture a different perspective to football that u don't see in the papers, a fun side. With this in mind I have gone for some unconventional angles and crops.
    Anyway, comment away and keep your eyes peeled for my 'soft-focus' arty Park Footie series that should be posted here by tomorrow.
    I hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I did making them.

    The soft focus series is now up here http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?p=891571#post891571

    Holy pic count! I tried scrolling down real fast to see if the people moved! :lol:

    These make me miss the days where all I had to worry about was studying and grades. Wait...I never really worried about that. These make me miss the days where I appreciated a simple pick up game of soccer. Thanks for the series.

    You're welcome. I'm glad they make you think of those days, that's what I'm going for.

    The series is intended for a gallery exhibition, hence the volume of work. :D
