Challenge Your Camera: #8 Sport

Dr B kindly allowed me to pick this week’s prompt. I’m not sure whether that was because I’ve been with him on this challenge from the start or because I failed miserably at « Colour Splash. » Whatever the whys and wherefores I’m delighted and have predictably picked «Sport » as this week’s prompt.

There’s probably nothing I love better than watching sport live with my beloved husband: bike racing, football, MotoGP, tennis, cricket, swimming, triathlon…..where he (not me) takes most of the photos.

This is very apt as we met at one of the UK’s most famous sporting universities. Although neither of us studied sport, it was one of the major factors in us choosing to study at Loughboro’ University. A decision neither of us has ever regretted. So here’s a selection of my sporting photos, some from WP archives and others from my Dropbox archives. Note: I have to use the latter as I’m out of media capacity on WP.
