6/52 for the group T189ers weekly alphabet challenge

The set theme was: C is for Close up.

I'm still not feeling very enthusiastic about photography at the moment -- or indeed about anything, but I was quite pleased how this last minute shot came out.

This is why I appreciate the weekly group challenges. Without it my photography skills would get rusty and then when the inspiration came back, I'd be messing up shots due to lack of practice.

6/52 for the group 52 in 2013

This week's theme was: Sport

I had hoped to photograph the town rugby team in action, but their game hadn't started and it was cold and drizzly, so I didn't want to hang around.

Instead, I snapped these youngsters playing football with their parents supporting from the touchline. This is where it all starts! :)
