Project 52 Week 25: Biker Blur

Wow, last week was such a busy week! I had a tough time deciding between photos of a triathlon, Grandma’s birthday, drag queen bingo (I can admit to it since it was a fundraiser), or two pool parties with friends. Oh … or the gorgeous rose vase we received as a wedding gift, shattered in a thousand pieces after a cleaning incident. I actually cried.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a creative photo, so I thought I’d take a chance with this one. What do you think? Is it creative, or just a big blur?

Panning shot: this was one of the top cyclists during the Kansas City Corporate Challenge triathlon last weekend.

Project 52 Week 5: Penalty

What is it with ice hockey and fights? Sometimes I wonder if they’re really that much more angry than other athletes. Either way, it makes for an entertaining sport. We had a great time watching the Missouri Mavericks smear the Arizona Sundogs Saturday night. Best of all – the proceeds from our tickets went to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network – a cause dear to my heart.

Refs separate two Mavericks and Sundogs hockey players during one of many fights Saturday night.
