Skill and grace

041504track2.jpgTrack is one of the more beautiful sports to photograph, especially the hurdles. The eighth graders at Floyd County High School showed off their skills and grace Thursday at a multi-school meet at FCHS.

I stopped off for a cup of coffee at Frank & Sally Walker’s Cafe del Sol before heading over the school at the track meet and one of my friends asked what was up for the afternoon.

“High school track meet,” I replied. He laughed.

“Oh, that sounds exciting,” came his sarcastic reply. “How can you shoot that stuff?”

“Because I enjoy it,” I said. “and that’s really matters.”

He shrugged and left. Some people just don’t get it.
