    Not a sports fan I`m slightly annoyed that BBC 1 has wall to wall football today.

    Thank God for the cable channels.:)

    Yes, we had two photographers to use 4 Agfa film stocks. These will be scans from the Ultra CN film I was using in one body.It was very saturated. They were filming with Agfa 35mm cine film, same as had been used for "Out of Africa" amongst others, as it was very warm.

    Local tog-ess. Many stories about her. Nothing in trousers was safe ;)

    Moderately well-known actress who the half of the crew that wasn't female or gay were drooling over:

    Lots of huge reflectors to counteract the harsh sunlight:

    I'm not a fan of daytime TV except 9 am on BBC1 Sunday morning.
    My main irritation with sport is on radio4. At 7:30 ish and 8:30 ish some chap called Gary comes on and spouts a load of rubbish. Often he replays commentary of a commentator screaming into a microphone like someone demented. The sport is even worse than the 5 minute god slot.

    Cyclist 32 looks in a bad way. Reminds me of a film (real film) of the Tour de France shown in our cycling club when I was about 14, fortunately not in colour. Chain-ring cuts, when someone gets ridden over in a pile-up, are horrible.

    Yep, Pete,that was a nasty cut and was even too nasty for the local press :eek: I can only imagine the injuries that
    occur in the Tour De France :eek:

    Cheers,

    Jack

    Wout van Aert's TT crash injury comes to mind as an example of a nasty one. Or maybe Richie Porte crashing out instead of valiantly failing to live up to his own hype (again and again)... :rolleyes:

    Enjoyed all the photos. Shooting sports is both energizing and testing. At times it tends to be out and out baffling, however, it's consistently beneficial at long last. As you acquire experience your abilities will improve.

    Show Jumping - takes a bit of bottle to be looking at where you are going next!

    I'd like to spend a day photographing white water canoeing but I don't know where to go. Occasionally see some at Llangollen. I think it is a popular sport upstream but I've never seen an event advertised for the benefit of spectators. For artificial water Lea Valley north of London is good.

    These from the bridge at Llangollen.

    It's not really sport as such but I spent a day at Holme Pierrepont in Nottingham shooting white water action a few years ago. Main mistake was using the high speed mode on the 7d2.

    So. Many. Pictures.

    Never made that mistake again*

    Thank you kind sir. You sent me off to Google. Now I know who Norman Thelwell was. I vaguely remember seeing his cartoons but goodness knows how long it is since I saw a copy of Punch. Lots of his work (or products based on his work) on Amazon under Normal Thelwell.
