What a glorious morning! Time to have another go with "The liquid mask"! Photo opportunities were ample - Alex was still in the pool (can you imagine he swam 26 lengths today, when the water temperature is still only 11 Celsius!) He is a bit of a perfectionist too (see the comment he left on April 16th) I thought of getting more shots of him so that he could have fun analysing his technique again! This time I made sure the camera was switched on before getting in and I also always made sure to reach for the smaller of the two buttons on the mask to take a shot. I still found it tricky to align my shots and get the framing right ...
Anyway here are a few of the shots I did manage to take .. I love the one of the water - I could almost get away pretending it was a painting :) these kind of shots come about when I'm too tired to race after a swimmer and am waiting for one or two to come back into my range! But I simply love these arty shots! one never can tell how these shots turn out because sometimes water still flows over the lens ... which makes clicking even more fascinating.
I'm sure Alex will have fun comparing his style to Alfonso's! Not sure if it's all down to bubbles or no bubbles Alex?! At least you swam 26 lengths versus Alfonso's (only) 16 :)
Mr. Alex "Bubbles"
interesting angle ... still bubbles :)
would you believe it .... more bubbles !
versus : Mr. Alfonso "Smooth"
See, no bubbles :)
