Camera, action.....

Our second visit to the ParaOlympics, this time to Stratford to see the athletics. Amazing athletes who had great support from the crowd. There was an awful lot going on, as is suggested by this shot. I had to crop it as an over-enthusiastic spectator moved into the frame at the critical moment, spoiling the other flags in the full image. Such are the hazards of photography!

Many thanks for everyone's kind comments on my last upload & to my husband, Roger, for lending me his lens Smile

Nice shot peeping through the array of Union Jacks at the wheel chair action on track: I have to say that Paralympics and the athletes have been so inspiring and a joy to watch on TV.

Creative work Vicky! Worth the vote, as they deserve our applaud for their spirit.

By the way, it would be nice to see your picture uploaded to the Forum post I have about Olympic and Paralympic Games.
