Photo Op #6: The U.S. Open

“This taught me a lesson, but I’m not quite sure what it is.”–John McEnroe

“I smile a lot, I win a lot, and I’m really sexy.”–Serena Williams

My golf AND tennis games feel like this sometimes.

My golf AND tennis games feel like this sometimes.

Check off another bucket list item.  I finally spent a day at the U.S. Open tennis championship, on Tuesday, September 3.  It taught me a couple of things, and unlike John McEnroe, it think I know what they are.

The first is, what in the world was I waiting for?  I should have done this years ago, considering I live only about 65 miles (or 100km) from the Billie Jean King Tennis Center.  The second?  If’ I’m going to take pictures, maybe I should bring something more advanced than my iPhone 4.  Yes, I actually am considering the upgrade to the 5S based on the reviews I’ve read of the camera.  In spite of my previous post, I’m betting I can’t  get any more distracted than I already am.  Take a look at the following images and then take the poll to provide me with your opinion of what I should do for a camera if I go next year.  Oh, as far as the question of Serena being sexy, we’ll keep those opinions to ourselves.

OK.   So now, tell me what I should do for capturing images if I go to open next year.

  1. 3 through 5: bring a real camera, learn how to draw, or grow ruties. I’m an android, myself 😉

  2. Love your recent obsession with rutabagas, so much so that I mentioned them in a recent post: http://mouseintokyo.wordpress.com/2013/09/01/the-tale-of-the-fish-burger/#comments
    I should have cited you, at least for inspiration. Sorry.

  3. Outerbridge Horsey wants you to grow rutabagas!
