Winter Olympic Photography?
Oh, no, you thought pictures of the Winter Olympics?
No, this is competitive photography as an event in the Winter Olympics.
You see, I was watching early rounds of Women's Olympic Hockey, prevaricating on whether to go out for my walk in the minus nine degree temperatures, when I reflected:
These Olympic athletes have struggled and suffered so much to get where they are, so maybe in their honor I can too.
So I swaddled all up in so many clothes I could barely move and I waddled outside with my camera. My camera was nervous about the cold so I kept it under my jacket, next to my heart. I made my way to the golf course, which in the extremity of Winter becomes something of a small, lonely wilderness.
No one was there. The cold air hurt my nose as I breathed. And I found a beautiful desolate wasteland.
I began competing immediately!
How did I do?
Well, due to Covid Protocols there were no other contestants.
And no judges.
And no viewers.
So it's a little hard to say.
Still, I like to think I finished in the top three.
