Weekly Photo Challenge: Community

A group of children wait for their shift during a hockey game at a community ice rink:

Taking hockey photos can be a challenge.  In this case, there is a bit of a twist because it was also outdoors at night.  In order to get this photo I had to bump up my ISO to allow for a quick shutter speed to capture the movement of the game.  Also, I had to wear several layers of clothing, because it was cold!  Other than some cropping and sharpening this photo is as it was out of the camera.

Recreation centers provide a lot to the local community.  They can mean different things to different people.  This center for example, has swim lessons, but to my family it is one of the local hockey rinks.  The photo challenge this week at WordPress is community and it is interesting to see all the different ways people think about community. Another community that I am part of is this blogging community. I appreciate my readers and enjoy talking to people who leave comments or whose blogs I visit.  A few days ago I wrote about a change I made to my blog and about changing my theme.  If you would like to take a look and leave a comment about my changes, the post is here.

How about you? Do you use a local recreation center? have you ever watched a youth hockey game? they are a lot of fun, so you should consider dropping by if you never have.  Feel free to leave a comment below.
