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.

  1. This may appear twice as first attempt just vanished! It may read different too. That’s quite an eclectic mix of photos, stadiums, people …. I’m a big sports fan too, school, university and beyond. The only sport I really avoid is football! Your husband needs his own photoblog 😂😂

  2. I am glad to see another woman that likes sports! I do too! Do you like Nascar? We are big football fans, racing fans, and my husband still bikes daily. He also is a curler! I am a watcher and a walker, now. I was a biker for years and belonged to several bike clubs all around the country, LOVED IT!

    • We don’t get Nascar on French tv though I’m more of a fan of two-wheels rather than 4. I like walking but still prefer cycling. Hubby and I are football fans but I think you call it soccer!
