Formerly 'Rambling with a cantankerous old mule"
Last Friday I got to take photos at a mini “athletics” day – homeschooled children mimicking the Olympics for an afternoon. And they all took it very seriously indeed: the children dressed up in their chosen nations’ colours; the flame was brought into the garden in relay; the athletes all paraded in waving their flags; there was a welcome message and oath to compete sportingly … And then the games began!
I really, really, really tried to whittle these down but this was the best I could do – from the 309 photos I took I give you 30 (of my favourites).
And at the end of the afternoon all the athletes received three chocolate medals each – probably the highlight of the afternoon (for them). Unfortunately the photographer wasn’t in the running for one.
