pics: So I was driving downtown to have a coffee at Starbucks after some uninspiring pics of the Blackfriar's bridge. I was going to sit on the patio and read. Then I spy the University of Western Ontario Cheerleaders doing a photoshoot practice in Victoria Park. I find a parking spot nearby and wander over.

This is where having my camera with me certainly pays off. There were over 20 of them plus the catchers doing pyramids and cheers. I was there for about 30 mins shooting with the other 'official' photog (who had some nice gear) and got some good in mid air shots. This wasn't preplanned so I had no real best way to shoot this. And some of the shots had depth of field issues or were a bit overexposed due to changing up what I was shooting: stills and then stunts and back. Live and learn. But the subject matter was pretty, err I mean pretty cool. Damn these girls were fit. And talented too.

I put a dozen or so pics into a set on my Flickr.

Carpe Diem

Hi Mike. The Freeps ran a pretty amazing picture from that session. I was deeply impressed with the composition - darn near impossible to get as three women hung in mid-air above the group that was to catch them. Amazing stuff.

It's so nice to be able to see London through your eyes. Wish more folks here were as snap-happy as you.
