While reorganizing my online galleries I stumbled upon some older Paintball photos that I would like to share.

Feel free to comment and yes I know there is an ugly black border around them ... One bad habit I got rid of in the meantime.

sports action

These are some great shots. I like the falling paintballs in the first one, and the guy who just got hit in the face. Serendipitous timing! I also like the hand with the camera peeking over the top of the protective screen in the last one.

These are some really great shots, I have never played paintball before but it looks like alot of fun. Out of your set I really like the shot of the guy getting hit in the face! It sure is a good thing that these guys were eye protection.

great pics... I played a bit of tourny ball a few years back and miss it ... was thinking how fun it would be to shoot... but not sure how safe i'd feel inside the nets with a camera :-/...

thanks for the stroll down memory lane
