Can you hear it?
Even though it was relatively quiet, this image has a very strong auditory quality...

Can't hear the sound of the soccer balls hitting that net?
It's deeply ingrained for argentinians. ;)

(Though I guess that was a tennis court.)

Actually, what I hear is the fence being shaken/rattled by the little league baseball team standing behind and calling out at the batter who's up at bat.

You can see the cumulative results of "ball pressure" pushing the net outwards. It's a childhood memory, the sound of the soccer ball (ok, we called it football) hitting such a net with a tinny "thwak!" sound followed by metallic reverberations...

We had tennis courts across the street from our house that had these same chainlink fences around them, so I can imagine the sound of the tennis balls hitting the fence as well. (they weren't blue then... my, how fancy!)
