Here’s my new postcard design of silver white with pink and yellow tulips. The subject is backlit and the image was photographed at the Ottawa Tulip Festival.
The postcard is offered for sale in my Zazzle store. Click on the postcard to go straight to page.
Having at least something in common with David Beckham, I trip up on using the word “football” when the game is locally known as “soccer”. We went to watch a friend’s team in an old timer’s football league play an away game in Arnprior. I went eagerly anticipating the challenge of “sports photography”, quickly learning that it’s not easy to get a good action shot. Half-time saw my wife and I taking a walk to offset the one we might have taken in the evening if it wasn’t for being away for the game and a meal to follow.
The sun was getting low in the sky and I became caught up with an abandoned road and backlit weeds. My wife went back to the game. I stayed with the setting sun. No discredit to the game and the effort being put out. It’s not the first time my camera and I have lost the plot. I returned to the pitch just in time for the final whistle.
