I’ve had blog guilt now for the last 3 weeks. Blame it on the cold, being busy at work and the Olympics coverage; I’ve just found it difficult to get out and shoot. Well, after falling asleep in front of the TV again last night (damn you 10m platform divers!), I awoke early and had no excuse for not heading out. Today was Sydney’s famous fun-run – the The Sun-Herald’s City2Surf. Starting from Hyde Park in the CBD, entrants take off along the 14km route and finish at Bondi beach. The event has been going since 1971 and the crowd gets bigger and bigger each year. I heard on the radio this morning that there were 80,000 participants – a far cry from the 2,000 that entered 41 years ago. And, no, I’ve never run it myself. 🙂

Above: The shot prior gave me the idea for this photo. The onlookers had been relatively stationary so I was able to drag the shutter here to create this effect with the moving runners in the background. The colour worked well.
