After a productive afternoon in the wharf I started home. The barriers were up and cyclists racing past. And I mean RACING. The GE Canary Wharf Triathlon was on! On getting to the other side of the square I was surprised to see cheerleaders performing. There was a large group of photographers with their expensive sports telephoto lenses, best I leave the long distance shots of the athletes to them I thought. The girls were from The Cheerleeding Company, with a number of others taking their photos I thought I’d join in and try a group shot. An obliging stranger with his own camera held the 580exII/PocketWizard/Softbox combo while I moved way back to frame the shot. A first! Thanks!
I tried to get a good action group shot for them but with the
anti ram-raid flower planters and barriers out the angle I would have liked just wasn’t possible. I loved the fantastic smile on one of the two brunettes in the team and asked for a portrait, many thanks, I hope I didn’t hurt the others feelings, you’re all gorgeous. If he’d been there I think Sid would have had his back to the triathlon and would have been enjoying the smiles, cheers and dancing going on on the pavement.
The nice flat abdominals this evening were a good reminder for one thing – I need to get my own dance fit routine back on track and join the ladies of the house at Seniha’s Zumba classes again. I find the fitter I am the less carrying a heavy camera becomes an issue.
