Photographers often can be found wandering around the abandoned buildings in Detroit, Michigan. One morning I was out with a group to photograph abandoned churches and their adjoining schools. At lunch time everyone decided to leave while I was finishing up a shot. I was the last person left in the spooky building, and running to catch up with the group when I saw this basketball in the old gymnasium. Knowing that if I didn't hurry I would be left behind, I didn't bother with putting my camera back on the tripod. I set it on the floor and just hoped that my settings were correct. When I returned home I found that I had captured my favorite shot of all time. The basketball perfectly lit with the football players seeming to jump for the gym's basketball hoop.
