Photo of the Week!

F 5.6; 1/1000; ISO 1600; 128mm.

Shot in Washington, DC, at the Capital One Arena.

Here we have a different kind of “higher flyer.”

While professional sporting events aren’t traditionally associated with travel and higher flying, sports tourism is very much a thing.  In a city like Washington, DC, where there’s lots to see during the day (the free, excellent Smithsonians and the monuments attracting the most attention), going to a game could be a fun activity once the museums close up for the night.  While the Wizards aren’t exactly known for their winning ways, they are nevertheless exciting to watch play.  Here, Washington Wizard Davis Bertans (from Latvia of all places) competes for a jump ball against the Orlando Magic’s Markelle Fultz.

The Wizards lost.
