I was back at Cambridge parkrun on the 2nd with the intention of doing some creative shots. Unfortunately the ones I tried didn't quite work out. Still, its always worth trying something new and I enjoy experimenting and learning. So far as the actual run was concerned, there were close on 600 runners again and it even featured a hen party!
I then went off on a short break. Couldn't resist a quick visit to the local football stadium though...
It was then down to the river bank for a quick view of the university bumps. Unfortunately I am so busy with my day job at the moment, I couldn't spend the normal amount of time taking photos.
The following day (16th) I thought I would try something different...archery. This is clearly more popular than I imagined. I was made very welcome but was quite rightly asked not to get in front of the archers... Its a very technical sport and one I should imagine is highly addictive. It also seemed very sociable and really worthy of a return visit.
The following day I went back to my old sport of triathlon at Stewartby lakes near Bedford. I had hoped to get some swimming shots as I had a couple of years ago but they chose to move the swim start which didn't give me the opportunity to get level with the swimmers. I was therefore left with just taking some cycling photos and honing my panning skills
Monday the 18th saw me trying to get some Gym shots for a project and taking photos of a 4 week old foal at my friend Jo Gummers yard.
it was back to cycling with a 25 mile time trial near my village on the evening of the 20th. Yet more panned shots for the project.
The 40th birthday celebrations I had been booked to photograph got moved. As a result, I could no longer attend...shame as it would have been a different challenge. My next outing was therefore on the 24th to Gosfield Lakes in Essex to have a look at another sport I had never taken photos of...water skiing.
I managed to get to one final cycle time trial before the end of the month (27th), this time a 10 miler again run by Team Cambridge.
I have Caldecote cross country festival next week. Its the second time the event has been held and my first visit. It features races at 3K, 10K and half marathon. I would encourage as many people as possible to support the event which is being run by Caldecote primary school.
