If you look closely.....!

I mentioned that this years City to Surf walk/run was a little different for me as I wasn't walking with my 'friend and sometimes mentor' in our usual state of 'indifferent' but  actually mega competitive zeal!! As you can see in the reflection to the left side, the masses of people striding on by, normally this wouldn't be an acceptable situations for me, but I had spotted this double sided reflection of the flame tree and sidetracked in to take this shot (yup there I am on the stairs!), hopefully the pictures I've shown so far from this day were worth the inner vexation of  coming over the finish line 7,703, next year it's all on, seriously.. I'm not that competitive haha!.....!! Happy weekend reflections....!!

  4. Very cool optics and so very clear. I've never participated in such a long distance event. My son is running the Chicago Marathon in October for the second time. The idea boggles me.
