My last set of photographs from The Galway Races Summer Festival 2011, some more portraits again.
Included is a funny one; a man with a kilt sitting down with his legs wide open.
Chris Weld, son of Dermot Weld, Winner of the Chanelle Leading Trainer Award on Sunday at the Galway Races.
It’s all over for another year…
The title taken from They Might Be Giants song. In case you haven’t noticed all photos have a musical related title.
In between races at The Galway Races I took some photos of the people attending. The fact that I had a 70-200mm f2.8 lens helped me get close up shots without annoying people. Sunday at the Galway Races Summer Festival is the last day of the races and a lot of locals go, most of the tourists are heading home.
The guy on the left in the last shots looks like Victor Meldrew from the tv show One Foot in the Grave. He’s even got a sad/angry face on him.
So I was on holidays for the past week or (a ‘staycation’, I don’t like the phrase but it fits) and we went on a family trip to Fota Wildlife Park. I didn’t get to take as many photos as I’d have liked to as I was there with our kids. I’d love to return sometime on my own so I could spent hours and hours taking loads of photos and sitting waiting to get the perfect cheetah photo.
I did get to ‘play’ with my new Sigma 70-200 f2.8 lens, which I’m delighted with.
