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. 

 

Here are the events for the next few weeks that I am planning to attend, either officially or unofficially. 

July 1st - Caldecote cross-country festival

July 4th - Eastern Masters Athletics League at Cambridge

July 6th to 8th - British Grand Prix at Silverstone

July 14th - Motorcross in Swanley, Kent

July 16th - Equestrian photos at my friends yard.

July 21st - Silverstone Classic motor racing

July 29th - World Cup Hockey
