A football manager reflecting upon the match and possible half-time changes…

Pictures at an exhibition cause a viewer to reflect on hairstyles she may once have worn herself……Epi admiring the work of J.D. ‘Okhai Ojeikere on display at the Victoria & Albert Museum’s newly opened Photography Centre.

A slightly ‘off-tangent’ response to Nancy’s A Photo a Week Challenge: Reflection.

My ‘Sporadic’ post dropped a hint that there would be a bit of a break in my blogging. I can now reveal that I’ve been on Holiday for two weeks with my Wife and Son. Although I was able to make three posts in the first week that I was away using the scheduled publication feature of WordPress, I wasn’t in a position to add more posts afterwards or to respond to any comments. We went to Scotland and stayed near Auchterarder in Perthshire on the northern slopes of the Ochil Hills beside Gleneagles. Here’s a photo of Epi and I taken by Alasdair as we walked in the Ochil Hills on a windy / cloudy day……Needless to say, I’ve returned with a lot of material that I can use for subsequent posts and challenges 🙂

Two shots of one of our long standing members of the Wingate & Finchley team. Both shots were taken during a hot pre-season friendly match. And a bonus shot of our kit man 🙂

A mid-half drinks break for the players and Ola’s caught with a water bottle. Taken with the Canon EOS7D mkII, Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8 IS II. ISO400 1/1600th at f5.6

Half-Time and Ola wanders over to say hello / pose 🙂 Fujifilm X100F ISO400 1/480th at f8

I couldn’t resist posting this one on twitter with the following text – “After the summer break it’s sometimes hard to remember what all the things in the camera bag are for – clearly the same applies to the kit 😉 ” Peter, our kit man, looks suspiciously at a ball. Fujifilm X100F ISO400 1/800th at f8 – slight post-processing correction for under-exposure caused by the white shirt (you don’t have time to mess around with exposure compensation on candids 😉 )
