The leaders of the Cadel Evans
Great Ocean Road Race….
….and the peleton.
And if you don’t like all that exercise…
I don’t have many…
…of the action shots required by this theme.
However, I think the speed at which these cyclists passed by…
…is conveyed by the blurred background.
Sydney’s King’s Cross Station is where
the last two images were taken.
I must have used a flash and I am not certain if
that is a reflection of the Sydney Harbour Bridge,
or a reflection of a poster behind me somewhere.
I don’t know Sydney well enough but something tells me
that The Bridge was not in the background of
any other King’s Cross photos so it must be a poster.
Still it looks effective…I think.
Bicycles and Motorcycles
We first noticed the high usage of bicycles in Brugge.
The Cadel Evans January Road Race in Geelong’s suburbs.
Motorcycles and shouldered television cameras
beaming the action to the world.
Riders look relaxed but are travelling
at a phenomenal speed.
Some consider cricket a dull game…however,
a closer look can find plenty of action

through his follow through,
or if the player is airborne trying to catch a ball.
I can hear the red cap in the background
However, no sign of the ball.
Or did he get an edge to it?
The way the wicket keeper and first slip
are positioned there may have been an edge.
Catch the ball…batsman out!
There does not appear to be much action in this photo
until you notice the speed blur.
The wind this group of cyclists produced
nearly blew me off-balance.
This really look likes fun.
the downward journey begins.
My contribution for
this week’s challenge

Coral on The Great Barrier Reef, off Cairns.
A cable car ride down to Cairns
The peloton of cyclists in the 2017 annual
Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race
I have never tried kite surfing…
but it appears to be…
a lot of fun and a bit dangerous judging by the helmet.
Nor have I ever been on a surf board…
manoeuvre as in the first two images.
However, I think this would be more my style.
Cadell Evans Road Race.
After several hours of country road racing…
riders have three of four laps of Geelong suburbs
before a finish on the foreshore.
Finally, one shot of the Melbourne Cricket Ground
on the first Monday in June.
Collingwood versus Melbourne.
Also the scene of the
1956 Olympics and the 2006 Commonwealth Games.
