    I always love the mix of total fun and pure chaos at my children's annual sports day, and for the first time this year I tried to capture some of it.
    My kit for the day was OM-D, E-PM2, 75mm and 17mm f1.8, PP in LR4...

    Lovely set, but especially the one of the girl with the bow. I wonder if her ancestors were at Hastings in 1066

    Thanks a lot.
    Yeah, I like the archery shot - that was the only keeper from that particular event.

    Thanks! The only bit of advice I ever got about shooting kids was to get yourself down at their level, so I spent the whole day lying on the grass as close as I could get to the action. I think the angles really make theses photos.
