The View: Against the Wind

November 29, 2011 

  • As I waited for the Middle Creek team to enter the field, I noticed Caulk and her fellow cheerleaders working to prevent the large banner they had made from breaking apart and flying away as a brisk wind whipped across the field. I used a 50mm lens and used the back of the banner as a natural frame.

Middle Creek High School senior cheerleader Shelby Caulk secures the back of a large banner as a strong northwestern wind fills the paper like a sail. Caulk and fellow cheerleaders were awaiting the arrival of the football team in Mustang Stadium for their playoff game against Panther Creek in Apex.
