Duathalon Details [9 IMG]
Posted By: Sailor, 06-19-2009, 03:44 PM

Last Sunday we attended a duathalon in which my older daughter, Abbie, competed. Normally, my wife and I aren't groupies for these (very early morning) events, but this one was at Sylvan Beach Park on Galveston Bay, only about a 10-min drive from where we dock our boat, on which we were spending the weekend. Abbie was disappointed in her results and I was disappointed in my ability to capture crisp images of moving competitors (see https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/post-your-photos/63535-disappointment.html), but I enjoyed shooting a group of eclectic images in and around the event. Here are several of them.

Thanks, buddy. Never thought of myself as artsy - think I should grow a goatee?

I'm thinking of one like Diz wore, which makes me think I need a beret, as well.
