    Now, I love photographing these ladies. I won't tell you why, but you'll probably figure out by the end of this series. These are 100% unedited, straight from the cam at the gf's house, so C&C appreciated. The entire set can be found here. All in all, I'll probably repost the complete edited set when I get some down time - there's over 500 photos to sort through!

    1: I call this either "Selective Focus" or "Perverted AF"

    These pannings are great fun! I like all of them.
    But I haven't got a CLUE as to what on earth they are DOING here, other than that they are on roller-skates going in circles. But I can see referees and all that ... what IS it?

    La Foto;

    What you are seeing is a spectacle-sport of American invention called 'Roller Derby.' It's played by skaters on a banked oval track. There are two teams. Points are scored when a member of one team gains a full lap on, and passes, a member of the other team.

    The game traces back to the 1930's, as do I. It has come and gone over the years -- like trench coats, elephant pants and mid-calf hem lines.

    It shares with ice hockey the probability of at least one fight breaking out per game. Minor injuries abound. In some variants, each side has a men's team and a women's team.

    Almost 100% correct Torus, except this particular track is flat and not banked. It's all part of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association and is great fun. The compeition is real, but they poke a lot of fun at each other with the silly outfits, names like "Misty Meanor" and jersey numbers like the symbol for Pi :)

    Oh, and Oldnavy - that reality show you watched on A&E was actually about these girls.. The Rollergirls :)
