Another busy but exciting day at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden yesterday. I was on hand to shoot the McEnroe Challenge for charity, which featured the unveiling of a mural of John McEnroe on the tournament grounds, an opening commemorating the first match played on the newly constructed Stadium 2, and exhibition matches with former tennis legends including Jim Courier.

I also shot Kids Day earlier in the afternoon, which made for some fun, refreshing images.

A fun day overall!
