Very creative Bill! I like this!
Bill Phillips: I can do creative wink

I get a lot of these shots by accident

Bill Phillips: So do I Rob. This one was actually intentional. mind you I have several where I managed to focus on the players before i got it right grin

I've never understood why they call it that.

Nice pic btw
Bill Phillips: Some say it was first coined by that old idiot Stuart Hall, who still insists on calling Leicester City Leicester Fosse a name they haven't used since the club went bust in 1919 and was reformed as Leicester City. Others attribute it to the great Pele, who i think may have used it in his autobiography.

Well that was more information than you wanted

I absolute think these series are great pictures. I love this one.
I can picturit some of your pictures framed and hang at the wall of their clubhouse.
Bill Phillips: If only they had one
The standard of this series is extremely high and you can take it as a compliment that I thought it was not you. Well I think that might be a compliment.
Bill Phillips: Coming from you Chad i will take it as a compliment

Is it tic tac toe ??
Bill Phillips: Might as well be Vintage.
I never thought of trying to show grass roots football as being arty farty.
Bill Phillips: Well there you go young Trim. You learn all sorts of things on shutterchance.
Was this the net they threw over you before they carted you off.
Bill Phillips: This is art mate. It may not be much but it's mine

You appear to have a spider's web across the front of your lens. The focus has picked up on this rather than the footballer chappies.
Bill Phillips: I think you might be missing the point of this picture Alan....mind you you aren't the only one
I get the feeling from your reply to Ginnie this was a planned shot Bill and if so it is very good timing, you must have patience to wait for the right moment.
Bill Phillips: I know it is hard to believe but this was planned. This whole series is an idea that has been in the making for some time......honest

In the net Bill, but what about the ball? smile
Bill Phillips: The ball is merely incidental John
Very nice focus point Bill.
Fine capture!
Bill Phillips: Merci mon ami!!
Ah, I see now - cross country running!
Bill Phillips: I knew you would work it out in the end Tom
