Family Circle Cup Tennis on Daniel Island, SC

Leighanne and I got to slip out last night to take in some professional tennis at the Family Cirlce Cup tennis championship going on this week at Daniels Island. This is really a top notch production that is put on every year here in town. We got lucky because being a member of the Charleston CVB, we got free tickets to the deluxe Family Circle skybox! This is where all the major sponsors get to hang out and watch some incredible tennis matches. I don’t really know to many of the players, just folks like Venus and Serena Williams when I see them around. My good friend and fellow photographer, Chris Smith, is one of the official FCC sports shooters for the event. Down below are some of his images that hang on the outside of the stadium. Now when I say on the “outside” I mean 40×47 foot monster images that you can see from like half mile away! We were so hungry afterwards, that we tried an awesome Chinese restaurant called the Dragon Palace right across from the stadium. I had the best pineapple shrimp fried rice that I have ever eaten! Yummy!

Granny B. / Yeah, they were able to 'slip out' because Granny B had the "Au-some Austin"...but she also got some of that wonderful pineapple rice! Great pics, hope you do it again.   11.30.1999- 12:00am
