~ the 12th Australian Masters Games

The 12th Australian Masters Games are on at the moment in Geelong, so I thought I'd play sports photographer and get along to as many sports as I could.
I managed 7 ~ Rowing, Swimming, Athletics (track & field), Archery, Badminton, Futsal (kind of like indoor soccer), and Basketball.
So here they all are seen by me

~ I wanna be a cowgirl....

I went to my first Rodeo recently at the Geelong Showgrounds where I was lucky enough to meet Rodeo photographer Keith French, and a nicer man you will not meet. He was kind enough to lend me a spare battery (I wasn’t very well prepared), and also, once it got dark and I knew my 100-400 wouldn’t cope with the shocking light, he offered me the use of his 70-200 2.8 ~ now how many event photographers do you know who would do that for a complete stranger?!
Check out his website ~
So without further ado, here is the Geelong Rodeo 2009 seen by me
