041504track2.jpgTrack is one of the more beautiful sports to photograph, especially the hurdles. The eighth graders at Floyd County High School showed off their skills and grace Thursday at a multi-school meet at FCHS.

I stopped off for a cup of coffee at Frank & Sally Walker’s Cafe del Sol before heading over the school at the track meet and one of my friends asked what was up for the afternoon.

“High school track meet,” I replied. He laughed.

“Oh, that sounds exciting,” came his sarcastic reply. “How can you shoot that stuff?”

“Because I enjoy it,” I said. “and that’s really matters.”

He shrugged and left. Some people just don’t get it.
