Watching the LaSalle Spirits, local Special Olympics athletes at their baseball practice last evening, gave me lots of opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the human form combined with the strong determination of the players.

These athletes work hard – willingly.

I feel grateful to have the opportunity to be one of the photographers in Windsor with the freedom to photograph our local Special Olympics athletes as well as the events,  coaches, etc. at practices and at  the greatly anticipated Ontario Special Olympics to be hosted by our city in July.

On Monday, May 25th I attended a track and field practice at Sandwich West Public School in LaSalle. It is  clear that these athletes are committed, focused and determined.

I celebrate the ongoing freedom allowed to capture lots of wonderful images to honour these committed athletes.
