Every year I watch the coverage of the “Le Tour” on one of our DSTV sports channels……..Not only is the racing intense but the landscapes and vistas of the regions they traverse inspiring. Being a photographer , one of the things I do is at the end of each stage , drool at the professional photographic gear on show from the latest to the greatest……….This year was no different and at the end of one of the stages I was ensconced on the sofa with a cup of coffee and the camera shot went from riders receiving the colour jerseys on the stage to a shot of the excited crowd with there various ” camera’s ” trying to capture the moment of the rider waving to the crowd………..
After picking myself up off the floor while nearly spilling coffee everywhere and laughing till I hurt , I had to pause and re-watch this epic moment again and again………I had to grab a couple of snaps and share this with you……
The words of a song came to mind …………….”someone I used to know”
