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! :)

Some parts of the UK had snow at the weekend, but we just got more rain. :(

Hmmm, I'm interested in whether you chose that distance shot deliberately to frame the scene, or just felt it would be wiser not to go too close? I'm hoping you manage to catch a rugby game for some action close-ups! :)

Because they were kids, I thought I'd keep my distance. It is sad that this is the state of affairs today, but as I wanted to put the shot online, having them small and unidentifiable was probably the best thing to do.

I'd actually hoped to catch the adult rugby match and the shot I had in mind was of a back view of the supporters with a glimpse of the game going on beyond, but the rugby match hadn't started and as I didn't know how long it was until kick off, I settled for the boys playing football.
