Hinsdale Classic

2010 was the last time I could remember shooting swim meets outdoors and I forgot how fun it is to be outside shooting rather than indoors.  This time around I was working for Pro Swim Visuals at the Hinsdale Classic in Hinsdale, Illinois.

Aside from being sunburned very badly on my left leg and evenly tanned on my right I would say my weekend was well worth the trip up to Illinois.  I could do without the toll roads which makes me very grateful Kentucky doesn’t have those…
