Feature patrol. That’s what a lot of photographers call the process of looking for a photograph to fill a hole in the newspaper. These images rarely go with planned articles and editors like to call them “stand alones”. Whatever you call ’em, I had to shoot a few yesterday and since the weather was beautiful, I roamed Skinner Park in the West Loop.
That’s where I found some hoopsters playing on the courts there. I couldn’t resist the temptation to work with the obvious Willis Tower backdrop. Just a slightly different take on the normal basketball action photo I suppose.
