B is for Basketball.............
If I hadn't told you what this was in the title, would you have known it was a basketball? A very much overplayed one at that.
The leather covering was peeling off, but those black rubber lines were just as they were when they were brand new.
There are basket balls that made to use in the court, and there are those that are made to use in the street.
This one did a lot of playing in the backyard - all dirt and rocks. It certainly took a beating, but it still held the air and was just as bouncy as ever.
By taking a macro shot of it, it took on an abstract appearance with interesting textures.
The boys were happy to retire it when it was replaced with a new one.
This is the third round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.
