Remote cameras make these shots a ... slam dunk
After viewing this photo by Wally Skalij on Wednesday's Sports cover, reader Andrea Goettinger emailed The Times:
"The photo of Kobe Bryant pulling off a dunk over Emeka Okafor of the Hornets in the April 27 edition is awe-inspiring. Where was he shooting from -- the top of the backboard? Kudos to Wally Skalij on one of the best sports photos I've seen in a long time."
Deputy Managing Editor Colin Crawford, who oversees the photography department, answered for Skalij, who is traveling: The photographer wasn't on top of the backboard -- but his camera was.
