Same same, but always different

I see mostly the same jockeys and the same horses, but it is never ever the same. The weather changes, and my angles. And everything else. Some of my images are not about racing but still lifes/details from the horses or jockeys. It is a colorful and very exciting sport! The owners and trainers often pimp their racing darlings. Now I am looking forward to a dirty dirttrack, AND a couple of exhibitions with my images. Exciting!   From yesterdays races at Bro Park.      😊🏇😊  Pelle

There are many dogs visiting the races…

2017-04-24 at Bro Park

A selection from yesterdays races. Sun and snow coming down. It started off not good, as my camera didn´t expose more then one image at the time. After some time of intense problem solving I managed to get it working as I would like it to. There are so many things to choose when you are setting up an advanced digital camera. It ended up OK after all, and once again I learned about preparations. Especially with a new camera.  You are never too old to learn…

Back on the track

After a long absence from the race track, I was back yesterday at Bro Park to photograph horse racing again. This is not Abu Dhabi or some other warm place, this is Sweden in the middle of our winter. Degrees below zero and freezing cold for the jockeys. Imagine sitting on a horse in full speed with as light gear and clothes as possible. What the horses think I don´t know. Here is my collection of images from yesterdays competitions.

More sport photos

This time from BBC, and a look into the history of amazing sport photos.

About the top image:

“Bob Martin’s photograph is so beautifully composed, so structured, that it is only afterward the details come into focus,” writes Buckland. “This is the Paralympics. The rules of swimming are almost identical to the regular Olympics but no prostheses are permitted. Torres has left his legs behind.”

Rio 2016: 25 of the most incredible Olympic photos so far

I just found these images in the Washington Post.

Sport is always a possibility for great shots. Look at these and you understand. The very first image is touring the world right now.

It would be great to have the opportunity once to cover an event this size. Color, speed, expression. It has everything. Happiness and sorrow, not to forget. And The Olympics is not over yet…

It can be…

Photography that is, can be funny, colorful, tragic, truthful, lying, graphic, informative, personal and so much more. Good and/or bad. Whatever that is is up to the viewer. This is a great selection.

Svenskt Derby på Jägersro den 16/7

-och jag skall ställa ut.

Välkomna till Jägersro den 16/7! Till min mycket stora glädje skall jag ställa ut ett urval av mina galoppbilder under dagen. Det är särskilt roligt då mitt intresse för sporten väcktes just där för precis ett år sedan. Bilderna visas på printar i storlek 70×100 cm.

Varmt välkomna!

-and I will be exhibiting.

Welcome to Jägersro the 16th of July. Jägersro is the race track for horse racing in Malmö. I am especially happy for this since my interest for the sport started just here one year ago.  I have made a selection from my horse racing images and they will be exhibited on prints in size 70×100 cm..

A warm welcome to you all!
