Sit At Your Own Risk

After warming up at a couple of practices, taking portraits of individuals and then group portraits, I finally went to my first Roller Derby Bout…. and I am so glad I did. Although deciding to go, after 6 hours photographing the Butter and Egg Parade in the hot sun, was not an easy decision to make. The Bout started at 10 pm Saturday night and at that point, I was far beyond ready for bed, but we rallied and made the journey to Cal-Skate in Rohnert Park. By the time we got there, the parking lot was packed and there was a line out the door. And well, who is surprised, when the event promises; hot females with attitudes, fish-net stockings, flying elbows, a well stocked beer garden, and a half-time belly dancing show by Black Sheep Belly Dance.
