American Karateka

52 Weeks #44


It's been a while since I took a karate portrait in the dojo, so I brought the camera along last night. The only problem is my dojo, unlike the other two dojos in my school, is not very photogenic. As class went on, though, it occurred to me the flag might make a great backdrop.


It's an older flag, and we're constantly having to tell the little guys not to lean on it. I wasn't sure how the fading color would look, but I think it ended up working in my favor, as it makes my white gi really stand out.
