Photos - What's YOUR sport?

Mine is iaido these days (Japanese sword training).

For the avoidance of any doubt, I am behind this lens in these shots rather than in front of. Which is just how I like it..........

LynnB I think in earlier years I did actually try beach volleyball for a while. But it turns out that I was so bad at it I was one of the few people who actually managed to kick sand in my own face.

Who needs a muscled beach jock to bully you when you have THAT kind of talent!

Trail running for me

These aren't pretty shots, but I'm super proud of them. Getting licks from my pup at the finish line of my first 100km trail race (actually it was 102.34km, but who's counting...). It took nearly 17 hours and I finished at about 11pm, running the last ~20km in the dark. The second shot is the state of my legs at the finish

I do all my own black and white developing at home.

My sport completely confuses Americans... French... Latvians... in fact, almost anyone outside of a very short list of countries! If it wasn't for the subcontinent being collectively nuts about it, only a very small portion of the globe's population would get it.

I refer, of course, to Korfball.

That photo looks suspiciously like cricket to me... But what do I know, I'm just an ignorant American (naturalized, not native born, though!)

That's cool dourbalistar and a nice image too (I have never been brave enough to try this sport).

But where is THIS shot?

That's Alex Honnold climbing Separate Reality in Yosemite National Park, California. He was featured in the Oscar-winning National Geographic documentary, Free Solo. Highly, highly recommended if you haven't seen it.

OK, my most recent sport was walking 200 miles on the Camino Frances, a pilgrimage in Spain. I guess it could be considered a sport

Arriving at the Cathedral in Santiago at the conclusion of the walk


Crossing one of the many streams along the trail


A view of the Cathedral in black and white


A sight along the way


All images captured with Fuji XE-2 and 27mm 2.8 lens

For some reason, I am of a generation that missed skate boarding, at least where I grew up. Those before me and now those who are young skate board, but I never even saw one as a kid. I think I'm too old to climb aboard now, but it looks like great fun. The first image was taken with a Fuji XE2-s/27mm at out local skate park; the second with a Leica R4-s/35 Summicron along the back alleys by the railroad tracks. I roped my son and his friend in for a make shift shoot and gained a new level of admiration for the likes of Annie Leibovitz.
