One of my favorites from a Tee Ball practice in the rain.


Kathleen Clemons December 07, 2004

You really should do a calendar, Rob. Love this- #194610

Marcie A. Fowler December 07, 2004

I say this one needs to go in March or April of that fabulous T-ball calendar you ARE going to do Rob!!! Another great capture. Must be tough to get the Georgia red clay out of clothes though. But it makes for fantastic images!!! GREAT JOB!!! #958604

Mellanie December 07, 2004

Too cute, Rob! Another wonderful capture! #958605

Amy N. Cappelli December 07, 2004

i love this one too! I still don't envy the parents who had to wash those clothes- i'm not a stickler for squeaky clean boy's clothes- I gave up on that along time ago but that is some red dirt and you captured it so well here! #958607

Cathy Gregor December 07, 2004

Definitely do a calendar, Rob! Your shots of t-ball are great!

Terrific image, Rob! (it makes me feel a bit "old" though...since I'm now getting that kind of baseball dirt out of my COLLEGE aged son's uniform!...where has the time gone?)
