Photos: Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles, 2015



Egyptian badminton player in match against Palestine on Monday at the L.A. Convention Center. This was my best shot of the day -- a simple, uncluttered composition that hints at the international breadth of the Games. I'm not sure I've nailed the processing yet (might be a little dark). But it's close. 

Some of these I like better in black-and-white -- especially the ones taken in low light. Even though I was shooting with a camera good in low light (Nikon Df), I was using my cheapo and slow telephoto, a Nikon 70-300.  
Other photos do better in color because -- hey! -- it was a pretty colorful event. 

Here's an essay I wrote for Zocalo Public Square about the Special Olympics, along with some of these pics.

Photos from the past week that I like: 









More after the jump!
