Ball Abuse

These tiny heroes of golf have become my friends this week as I have been photographing a golf course. Although I am not a golfer, I have grown very fond of these flying balls. They take a lot of abuse from their owners who unrelentingly wield long, dangerous clubs. These helpless little balls suffer gashes in their flesh, get lost in dense woods, and drown in ponds. Survival only guarantees more abuse. It's a terrible life! In the end, even when all goes perfectly well and they reach their destination on time, they still don't get the recognition they deserve. Instead, they get shoved into the darkness of a pocket with disregard only to await more abuse on the next round. #IStandWithGolfBalls
