Basketball is on my mind lately, between the nightly NBA playoff games and my boys practices and games, I can rarely go a day without thinking about it. Luckily I love it! So you know if it takes up space in my brain, it is bound to inspire something, so here are some basketball shots I took that are inspiring to me.
"The Hardwood" - Love the colors, the striping and the reflections of the lights
"Out of Bounds" - Love the bold red line. Brings about thoughts of barriers, boundaries, loss (you lose possession when you cross it) and lines you don't cross
Loved the way this broken chain draped. Inspired thoughts of asymmetrical chains with circular accents.
Loved the movement in this one
These last 3 pics were taken back in 2008, but they fit perfectly with this post
Love the texture, lettering and the bit of distressing
Again, love the texture and the bold lines which create interesting shapes. the cracks add some interest as well
This one's my favorite. The colors, the lomo, and the grittiness are perfection in my eyes and it really sums up how I feel about basketball. Love the net in this one too. If there was a shrine for basketball lovers, I think it would look like this.
Well, hopefully you'll see basketball in a different light after seeing it through my eyes.
GO CAVS!!!!!!!!! (Had to put that in for the boys. They love LeBron!)
