Well after many basketball games, today she finally shot her first. Andi worked a remote camera that was set under one of the baskets at the NCAA Division III Men’s basketball Championship. I tried the night before, but not enough fingers and being to far away, the transmitter would not work properly. So today my lovely, trusted basketball assistant took over and got many good shots. This was the first of the many! She got a little trigger happy, for the players were a little to far into the lane. Later she waited a bit and the pictures get better. But this is the first good one…. and it’s published!
