Stopped by Patterson Park on Sunday morning. I had never been there so I thought to check it out. I hadn’t realized what a huge park it is. It seemed like half the dogs in Baltimore were being walked. Any way, I saw this soccer game in progress and gave it try. I liked the symmetry of the legs on this one and call it “soccer two step.”

Amateur soccer at Patterson Park, Baltimore.

Poised for the kick. Light was awful at 9:45 AM on a bright sunny day. Unfortunately the second player from the left over lapped the kicker, but I liked the kicker’s pose.
