The View From The Back

So, what do I do to amuse myself while I'm at a track meet waiting for Parker's turn to run? I take pictures of the back of people's shirts, of course. You can find all kinds of great humor and inspiration doing that.

And other benefit....when I take pictures of people's backs, they don't know I'm doing it, so they don't give me that "Get that camera outta my face, lady," look. :)

What a great idea! I remember getting those type of shirts when I ran and thought it was so cool. Anyone remember the 'No Fear' t-shirts you could buy? Loved them in jr. high! Thanks for sharing all the thoughts! And for how silly the shots, you had great composition!

Julie said...

Great idea. Love reading the shirts too!

janett said...

What a great idea! Love some of those shirts.

Mandy said...

WOW...I love the montage of shirts you have collected photographically. Those are just amazing. I really love sports so much, but those meets can be boring (even for a runner). Its great that you found something to entertain yourself.

Bobbi said...

Oh wow lol, I never thought to do this. It's funny how many people wear shirts with words on them!

Becky said...

What a great idea. It would be interesting to see the different kinds of t-shirts you'd see at different events. I'm going to have to give this a try.

Amy said...

How fun, I really enjoyed reading those tee-shirts! :)

How cool! I wish my son's team had made up shirts like this! (this was for a team, right?)
