Derby Or Bust

Dolly BustHer

Dolly BustHer, skating for Team Pink at the London Roller Girls inaugural bout. I think this once captures a certain spirit of the thing, and is a decent opening for a few shots from the bout. I found shooting at the bout to be an utter bastard, as the one lens I’ve got that has enough zoom to let me get close the action is a zoom that has no anti-shake, and fairly narrow aperture and depth of field at full zoom, but as I said to someone (whose name I have forgotten) at the event who was remarking on the drawbacks of my chosen lens, while I have to take fifty shots to get one usable one, the scattered few like this I get with that lens are generally worth the suffering.
