Volleyball practice, March 7th 1973

Hi folks! One of the projects I'm working on involves doing tonnes of scanning for our 60th Anniversary Image Bank. Many of the images are pretty fun! Now, I'll be honest, here, stills of people playing sports tend to look pretty silly to me, but this gentleman with his improbable poses caught my eye. And now I've just noticed his mouth never closes and his feet never touch the ground! Aren't great athletes supposed to float, or something?

For your viewing pleasure, I've arranged them chronologically and made them into an image gallery. Enjoy!


From the Kitchener-Waterloo Record Photographic Negative Collection, 73-3004, Sports: Volleyball, University of Waterloo Practice, March 07, 1973.

And, just because, I created a gif out of the same shots:
