I'm not sure I had fun or not yet taking thousands of photos at the Games. Maybe I'll make up my mind when the pay comes in, not that it will be a lot, I did it more for the experience. It was tiring work sometimes, other times easy. It was shot week so being inside in air-conditioned environments shooting snooker wasn't too bad! But outside shooting soccer wandering around 4 fields trying to get a shot of every competitor was trying.

Shooting squash from up high and just getting tops of heads and backs wasn't that fulfilling, but some of the social events were fun, and all the competitors and officials were good to us and always keen for a chat about their sport. The netball tent had zero non-alcoholic drinks, and I was told, after asking for one, "this is netball".

Our mandate was to get shots of everyone, getting good shots was secondary, so it was a different way of thinking.

Met up with Transit, Gub and Class A for a drink and meal, some photographic talk was had, and some political! I'm happy for Transit to put the photo up if the others are.
Yeah put the photo up Pete

I get that a lot 😂
One of participants preferred not to appear
My brave attempt at cropping and editing revealed
deeper images in the teacups than the mugshots so went for art

Went to puppy classes this week....
Some numpty with a huge canon pro kit wandered about taking "snaps".....
Basically coming up behind and shooting from 3 metres using an f-off zoom...

Ultrasonic focus motor... and every dog heard, turned, nutted off.....
and the shooter smiled...kept shooting the "wonderful dogs in alert pose"

Might loudly explain to her the problem if I see her there next week...grrr

Hahaha. You've just reminded me of the chaos when Annie took our (then) young Boxer, Phoebe, to dog obedience classes for the first time.
