Well, not much of global news interest here... but here are a few of the pics I've shot on my travels this last week or so.

Eye-watering stuff for starters... or are you just pleased to see me?...

Some of the UK members may have heard of Havant & Waterlooville FC. Here's a pic from their last (very bizarre) match before their big FA Cup day out at Anfield. If you'd like to see some more pics of a very odd night in South Essex, feel free to let me know...

Great stuff as always Gavin. #1 must have 'made an impact' - the picture and caption made me laugh.

I've been following the story about Havant & Waterlooville, so please do post up some more pictures, and let us know the details from the touchline! I know they ended up getting beaten by Liverpool, but they did put two past Liverpool in the process!!

Cheers,

Simon.

Gavin, good stuff as usual...#1 makes me sit up and protect a little better. Liking the boxing, something haven't gotten to shoot yet.

Cheers,
Mike

Cheers Chris! Thurrock is a long way from Anfield...

Thanks Simon...

Of course, the floodlight failure rendered the potential appeal pointless! A bizarre twist given what had gone before.

I said to myself as the first shot began to load, "Well, that's not quite the usual 'peak action' shot I'm used to seeing from Gavin..."

Then the rest of the shot loaded... Definitely peak action :lol:

And even us hicks here in the states have been able to follow Havant & Waterlooville FC's recent journey. That's what the FA Cup is all about.

Nice work as always and thank you for sharing.

Regards,
Jeff

Thanks very much Jeff! The Havant story has certainly had global appeal.

As for peak action :lol: I'm fortunate to see plenty of that each week on the Marshes... here's a less painful spot of the peak stuff...

Thanks very much Mike. Not sure if they have them in baseball, but a 'box' is used in cricket... perhaps footballers should consider them too!

As for shooting boxing, highly recommended unless you're a bit squeamish!

Good colour on the last shot.
Great set of pictures.
Re the story about Havant, they would have pulled a few bob from the game against Liverpool so that should keep them in the black for a year or two.
