    Smile sports photo gathering -free

    On Saturday and Sunday November 8 & 9, the OSIM Singapore Triathlon 2003 will be held at East Coast Park. This is a great opportunity to shoot some good action pictures. Its a great event to shoot at because all the action is within walking distance.
    On Sunday only (due to baby sitting duties on saturday while wife attends the Nikon Clubsnap wildlife photo shoot) John Cosgrove, the editor of PHOTOi magazine, will be in attendence offering advice on where to go to shoot the best pictures, etc etc and he will also have with him some of the latest equipment on show,
    so look out for the big guy and don't be shy in saying hello and then show him your great pics which could be in the launch issue of PHOTOi in December.

    Hey there travelshooter

    I visited the event today.

    Took some shots - People shots while running were OK - nothing to really shout about.

    I find the bicycle part of the race more exciting with a bit of a rush.

    Anyway, I posted them on http://www.happysnappies.com/gallery/tri.

    Please feel free to give comments.

    I wont be able to respond any emails or comments as I will be travelling tonight and wont be back till 22 Nov.

    Cheers
