Here are a few images from Day 8. I had some down time today, so between shooting matches I did some roaming on my own and shot some features from around the grounds. It felt good to get away from shooting straight action for a bit and mix things up. 

I didn’t get anything too special. I think I just needed to do some mindless wandering after a nonstop schedule over the past seven days.

Here are our galleries from Day 8.

Day 9 tomorrow! Break out the ponchos and rubber duckies. Forecast: Rain.

Day 6 is in the books, and it was really, really hot. I was all over the place, and shot a ton of tennis. Tried to get a nice mix of high, low, tight, and wide shots. I’m loving how colorful the photo opportunities on court are here.

Here is a link to our series of photo galleries from day six.

Another day coming up!
