So what's been happening? Not a lot really, I did offer each of the Pony Clubs that I had photographed images for their web site. Only one has responded, we did agree on some images, but the selection is being checked by somebody else then I can send them over.
Yesterday I was at Ham Polo Club. The weather was apart from a very brief moment glorious, for the brief moment we had rain, the very fine stuff which gets you wet extremely quickly, we also had high winds during the rain which I must confess was most unpleasant. Overall the polo was good and I finally managed to organise the prize giving such that I could get some decent shots, you know the type, two people side by side both hands on the trophy looking at the camera, it's about as unrealistic as you can get, but, it does please sponsors showing them up in a good light. The images have been uploaded, this time I have seperated the matches giving each their own gallery, it should help people find their own shots.
The polo season will end in a few weeks and that will be it. I could I suppose follow arena polo, but with winter comes low light levels and, although the horses don't move at the same speed as on grass, the mallet does move quickly, as do the riders' heads and limbs, thus getting decent images is a matter of luck. My local arena is at Epsom and worse still, is indoors, it is lit, but not very well, certainly not like the big events which are televised.
I'm still waiting to hear about a horse show that is coming up. I did email them about going along and I received an email stating that my offer had been passed on. I will give them a chase later today.
