Wheelchair Tennis

By ukgubbi
Dear Friends

I thank you all profusely for all the comments, views, votes and overwhelming user awards to my previous upload.
I have been working as a volunteer for an NGO called " Ivolunteer". Two days back, I was asked to photograph the event " Karnataka wheel chair tennis championship 2015" held in a very prestigious Tennis court in my place - Bangalore. I immediately agreed and went there with butterflies in my stomach, as I was doing the event for the first time. When I met all those participants , (about 80 of them from all over India)their enthusiasm and attitude changed my perspective towards life. I took about 300 images, enjoying every bit of the event. The experience I had keeps me grounded rest of my life. Some of the images for your kind perusal

with warm regards
uma
