Darts in a Dartboard, if only I had asked him to throw at the Double's instead of the Bulls Eye!
20 years ago, G and I used to play darts regularly for respective mens and ladies teams, and played for a number of years.
Last year, our pub started a darts team for the Wednesday league, which is now mixed so men and women can play for the same team. We bought a new dartboard and played a little at home.
In no time at all G was back on form, better even, than he used to be. He has twice if not 3 times hit 180 during a league game, and has had a few at home whilst practising too, bugger. It's like his darts have a homing device on them or something!
Me on the other hand, I can't hit shite with a shovel. My score's are about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike.
Anyway, whilst I was upstairs last week, listening to the rhythmical thump, thump, thump ... thump, bounceout, thump of his darts it occured to me that capturing a Dart in flight with the Dartboard in the frame too would make a good post for today.
I have to tell you, that I have learnt this week that my mind is not safe to let loose on it's own. I have a really good camera, a little knowledge, and bags of enthusiasm, but do you know how hard it is to capture what my mind 'thought' would make a good shot? Well? Do you?
200 photo's later, I kid you not, and this is the best you are gonna get. The photo's are a little grainy because I had to hike the ISO setting up to 1600 in order to get enough light for a decent exposure, but it's this or nothing.
So 'D' is for ... Darts in a Dartboard.
