Day 7, completely missed focal point while shooting totally manual and filming with a 2nd camera. The point being it has been a privilege to be witness of this event and will try again during the rain!

By chance I got a photo of Peter Sagan our new world champion on the road course training day when I was shooting with an all manual camera. Very good looking young man but seemed to have focused on his female teammate (Tereza Medvedová). My batting average in getting good shots wasn’t very good for this event but really enjoyed never the less.

I had a chickadee land on my hand for a peanut today and all three titmouse friends. Reflecting what was so special about today my pea brain remembered it was my mom’s birthday who would have been 101. A couple of cool photo’s of mom at the Virginia State Fair circa 1930’s? She’s sitting on a bear in one below.
