My camera has been able to allow me to meet tons of interesting people and witness events that I would never had experienced if I was not taking photos. In January, I had the opportunity to take photos of The Philly Roller Girl’s Vegan Pie and Wing eating contest at The Abbaye in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia. Philly Roller Girls is the women’s roller derby team in Philadelphia, and is part of the WFTDA. Last year I actually participated in the wing eating contest, but this time around I chose to snap photos instead of sucking down wings. If you’re interested in roller derby, check out the WFTDA to find a league near you!
