Photo Challenge: Motion

Once in a while I see a photo challenge theme for which I already have something to show.

For this week’s theme, I immediately thought of all those soccer photos that I took.  I’ve shot enough blurry pictures of the boys running to show motion, but not all of them good.

This one, though, remains a favourite of mine.  The sequence shows the run to the ball of the two players ….

…. then the struggle over the ball – the defender defending and protecting the ball, the other to get to the ball.

In case you’re wondering, the defense won the ball :)

Here’s other photos on motion – dance.  These are Bolivian cultural troupes and their presentation during local festival events.


Bolivia Heritage Day 2009-1

They always have such lovely colourful costumes.

Next time I’ll blur their dancing, instead of freezing their movement.

Wrapping Up

Coming to the end of the Orchid Show 2015, here’s other sights to see.

New blooms to come out …

… purple bells …


… fountains …

Oh, I forgot!  This is a vanilla root. So the sign says … I really should be more mindful of those signs so I know what I’m taking a photo of …


And more experiments and practice with the lens.

Hope you’ve enjoyed the Orchid Show 2015.
