If you know me at all you know apart from certain people, there are just a few things I love and two of them are footy and also taking photos and this year I started to combine both of them.
I've played footy for the Penrith Rams the last few odd years and this year, we hd a successful year overall after hardly winning games the last 5 years or so.
We ended up getting two of our three teams into the grandfinal, so I ended up taking around 1300 photos for the day, kinda crazy huh, but there was so much going on and great action to be captured.
Dave in action playing his last game for the Rams, where he is well renowned taking out a few awards over the years including best and fairest, when he was much younger I might add.
Screamers are always plentiful and I started getting a little bit better with my shots by the last few rounds and finals
One thing I do like about footy is the comradship between all the players.
The final was played on the home turf of the new GWS team, loved playing on a nice surface and look at the crowd, AFL is slowly becoming more apart of Western Sydney.
At the end of the day, it ended up being a loss for the senior 1st grade, but a great season. "Rams to rise again in 2010" will be replaced with "Rams in heaven in 2011", with hopefully going another step and taking out the big game.
One win for the day out of the two, with the 18's winning quite easily which was expected with them going undefeated through the season with an average winning score of over 100 points.
I thought I'd try some different photography and headed down to Penrith's 1st grade's match, where a couple of the boys from footy, were in the team, it's alot harder trying to get good shots at Cricket compared to footy, trying to get the perfect shot. I'm pretty sure, I need a better lense for the job, ahh to dream of all these lenses I want :(
