Summer returned for a couple of days but tonight the rains came back, just in time for my bike ride. Time to buy fenders for the bike I think. Anyhow, the photo above was taken a few weeks back at a high school football game when we were in the middle of our late arriving but hot dry summer. A reminder of what was.
Fun to get out and shoot sports now and then.
The great Dave Bidini was in Victoria last night giving the annual Orion lecture. He talked about his travel for his books and TV documentaries and afterwards took questions from the audience. He’ll be around for a few more days talking to various writing classes at UVIC. I’m sure it’s not always so but Dave’s life seems so seamless, travel and music and writing and family and hockey all melding together magically. Plus he’s a cool stylish guy. Just look at the images from last night.
Fall is football and soccer season.
I don’t shoot sports that often these days so it was great to get out to a high school football game. I was happy with the results especially this one shot.
What made this really amazing is that it is cropped from such a small section of the file. Caught on the wrong side of the field I shot the play anyhow.
This is how it looks on the front page.
