Sometimes amusing, often fascinating

"Congrats to both players of the Indian Wells final. In the end, Elena V. deserved to win, but what a battle this was again and what a powerful tennis of the one year older Kuznetsova. What a fun to watch this. Svetlana, please stay strong, healthy and competing for many many more years!"

Many more galleries to come > Versmold, Hechingen, Bad Saulgau, Leipzig, Prague, Bredeney, Aschaffenburg, Darmstadt …

As the name implies, the intention here is in documenting the beauty, not only of the players and the sport itself, but of the whole ambiente, the surroundings, all those small situations which make the WTA and its events so interesting, sometimes amusing and often fascinating.

  • There is some excessive ambition in tennis as well. Hard competition makes the borders between enthralling verve and mere grim catfight pretty fluent now and then.
  • But the point here is to celebrate the aspects of flow, abandon, presence, vigilance, strength and shine of beautiful WTA and the human side behind the scenes.

There is so much to spot!

14/3/17 —- At the moment I work on a b&w gallery of Linz ’16. It’s fun to sort out the essence of thousands of pics. But it’s work, too, which needs some time. So, why not come back to this now and then in order to see, if there’s an update available…

12/3/17 —- While the players give their best in Indian Wells and elsewhere, I did the same today by creating this lovely black and white gallery of the ITF event in Prague I was allowed to take pictures of last year. In the process of reconstructing this domain I fall in love more and more with black and white. Could be that I’ll change horses completely. So, if you like color pics, maybe you should download a few before they are gone…
