I am not going repeat what I already wrote here. A quick synopsis, starting August 1st, 2010 I will publish a picture I take that day everyday for a year (well to be exact I will do this everyday until July 31st, 2011). This is the 42nd of those photographs. Also, there is a Flickr collection called “The Awesome Leftovers” where I put the daily shots (if any) that didn’t make the cut.

A first today there are two photos. Brooklyn Bombshells vs. Manhattan Mayhem, Brooklyn took Manhattan to town, the final score, 125 to 80. Brooklyn played very well. Anyway, I thought both teams deserved a shot of the day.

We’ll start with Brooklyn Bombshells. This photo is of Hard Anya (i4i) stretching before the bout.

The next shot is of Miss American Thighs (76) of Manhattan Mayhem also stretching before the game.

I love roller derby. Anyway, most of the photographs are not action shots unfortunately. I was trying out some new settings during the jams. I wanted to to see if I could capture the movement of the skaters with less blur.  At least a focus somewhere in all the fury, but tragically most of the shots turned out too grainy.

Here’s the rest of the shots from that night that turned out, Day 42 – I Love Roller Derby.

I realize the date is an important one to remember as well, bigger than all this. Maybe that is another reason two seems fitting, though honestly it just came to me while I was typing here. I am not usually like this, but that day I remember and give my respects to what it is and was.
