Score ? - One hundred and NOT OUT !!

Posted by
Sunder (Chennai, India) on 10 October 2010 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

This is my 100th post in AM3...
Never in my life would I have imagined that I would post an-image-a-day for 100 days..

Thanks to all friends at AM3 for your comments, encouragement which kept me going.

I must also thank my entire family..who have joined in and contributed - each in their own way. My wife and daughter - who helped me with the shooting & ideas, ..My parents & sisters for digging out old stuff ( much more to come yet) and help with extra information regarding our tradition and ideas..

About this picture... it is a bat autographed by the team-players of Hampshire County Cricket Club 2000, which my wife won in a raffle conducted at our daughter's school - Oakwood Junior School, Southampton a decade ago.
( Psst..psst...It still is a brand new bat and has never faced a ball in its life.....)

Vaido from Võrumaa, Estonia

Congrats for score :) It's a challenge to find picture worth sharing for each day. And we all have so different backgrounds, that sometimes most ordinary pictures for photographer get most of attention :) Keep going!
