This shot was taken during the Ironman 70.3 Triathlon held on the Geelong Waterfront today (Feb. 7 2010)

I watched this little guy shoot about 20 shots and he was getting frustrated because he wasn’t getting the shots he wanted!

I had a small laugh to myself as I was going through the same experience!!

    Nice candid shot ! I understand his frustration too, even spending many times the value of his point-and-shoot sometimes doesn’t help get the shot !

  • mmmmm I know !

    Great capture Al. I understand the boy’s frustration.. I took soo many shots there and the only one I liked was of a dog sitting on the grass….
