After the swim meet Friday night. Ohio State U. Here’s the family headed to the car. The pizza order already phoned in for pick up. We’ll be back at the pool at 8 in the morning, 6 am on Sunday. I was lagging behind the family a bit, hauling a bag and a chair. Jack came to relieve me of the chair which was nice. I saw the lights and shadows. Steve’s old dorm. No face in the crowd.
I was astounded by the huge amount of donations at the Ohio State natatorium on Sunday afternoon where I attended the 2016 Thanks for Giving Fall Classic Swim Meet & Food Drive.
Monday, a forklift will come to transport the huge containers to a truck for delivery. All the swimmers from competing teams brought food for the Mid-Ohio Food Bank
Four of my grandkids swim for the hosting Ohio State Swim Club.
Seeing these overflowing containers was a reminder to not only be grateful for all I have but to remember people in need. The swim meet announcer read the statistics of who is hungry and it is painful to know.
Witnessing the swim families’ generosity and knowing people are hungry and rely on the donated food was a sight I wanted to share.

Parting shot from afar, through the glass window of the Natatorium. Doesn’t look like 50 meter length from this angle. The pool was divided up into sections.

Swimming with OSSC (Ohio State Swim Club)
Practicing at the Intersquad Swim Meet at Ohio State Thursday night. Here is the process. Why it is important to practice.
Too Early– Not off the blocks yet
Ooops, missed it. Too late, Not just off the blocks but IN the water
And then a couple where I felt I hit the mark better. Anticipating when the swimmers would be OFF the blocks but NOT IN the water yet
Used the Canon 70-200 mm lens on the Canon 5D. The one that was repaired a couple of weeks ago. It seems to be doing all right.
I felt I got some good action photography practice in as I watched the kids swim. Maura made it 100 meters Freestyle. That is a looong way for a 5 year old.
