From left, Trevell Davis, Znobian Mcadory and Damon Coleman take advantage of the afternoon sun to play a pickup game of basketball at Monterey Park in Janesville on Friday, March 17. After taking some photos at ground level of the group playing basketball, I asked if they were OK with me taking some photos from above with The Gazette’s new drone. This angle provided a more interesting, graphic look at their game, where the shadows became the most visual element. Aware of this, I waited for the moment to trip the camera’s shutter while one of the players was shooting.
