I've always been interested in seeing a game at every NBA arena and it would probably just be a matter of time and money to make that happen. After reading The Happiness of Pursuit, I decided to make this "pursuit" a little more interesting.
So, my "pursuit" is going to be to photograph each NBA arena and the 7 wonders of the college basketball world, as well as see a game at each venue. In an attempt to make things more fun I also want to shoot a free throw in the process of taking photos.
But I don't want to stop with high profile venues. To me it's more than just visiting arenas and seeing a basketball game. I want to explore the history and culture of basketball on a different level than what is shown in the mainstream sports media. I want to take photos of basketball courts of all shapes and sizes, share stories of people who love the game, and inspire those who see these stories.
For me, basketball has been something I've enjoyed for a long time with friends and family. I've gotten to know several of my closest friends by shooting baskets in the driveway or playing pickup games at the gym. I want to share my passion for the game with everyone in this unique way. Whether you enjoy basketball as much as I do or not, I hope that you will feel inspired as you follow Red Phog.
