Black and white wednesday

I went to watch my son play rugby on saturday, the injuries during the match included one broken nose, a broken wrist and two concussions. I hate watching my son play as I want to protect him (not the done thing!) so I watched through my camera lens which made it a little bit easier to bear and took this picture of one of team running with the ball. It's black and white wednesday over at The long road to China so don't forget to have a look.

  1. Ooo I love that! Love the sharpness of the ball handler. Excellent shot! Makes me even more "confirmed" in my decision to purchase the Canon 7D instead ;-)

  4. Hurrah! I love seeing your b&w shots! (So funny how looking from behind a lens helps so much, I do that with other things too) - a great capture.

  5. That's a great shot and yes, I think I understand the logic of having the camera lens between you and the action. I can appreciate how difficult it must be to watch your baby in the scrum.

  9. Hey Justine, great shot. I know exactly how you feel about watching. I'm not good at sports; not even spectator sports.
