Sometimes it's the little things that I notice that I think can make an interesting photo. I shot this image before the Fenton at Glenbard South football game on Friday, Sept. 22. I was watching this little thing float up and down through the air and I tried a few times to make a photo of it. Finally I was able to get a sharp shot of it and the background just blurred out. This photo was published Perspective column in the print edition of the Daily Herald.
