Sunday photoblogging: Downs League football

by Chris Bertram on September 13, 2015

Apologies for the hiatus in Sunday photoblogging. It turned out that getting the embedding code from Flickr whilst travelling with an iPad was more challenging than I imagined it would be. Here’s a picture from a few years ago. Most sports photography is with long-lenses (300mm or so), this was an attempt to capture the action by getting up really close with a wide-angle lense. It succeeded enough for a student newspaper to steal the image, anyway.

Nice action picture. I missed your photos these last Sundays!

So glad Sunday photoblogging is back! I was worried last week.

Re this shot: I like it a lot, but it doesn’t strike me as “sports photography” per se. It’s dramatic in a somewhat different kind of way. And I suppose the angle’s quite unusual for sports photography—maybe that’s what’s throwing me off.
