After a failed shoot at BMX the day before, I had to go back and give it another go. As much as I enjoy shooting motor sports I figured this would be the closest thing. BMX had multiply riders on the track which helped a lot. I got sick of all the shitty angles we were allowed to shoot from and dealing with the hundreds of photographers so I head to the top of the grandstand just like NASCAR! It allows me to see all the action on the track with super clean backgrounds.
Then I was BORED and busted out the tilt shift
On the way out I knocked out few pan blurs and I was lucky it was USA rider.
I made the short walk over to the Water Polo Arena to shoot USA vs Spain women’s gold medal match. With this being my fourth water polo game, I wasn’t even excited even if it was a gold medal match.
Here is a solid action photo from the game.

The rest is celebration and medal ceremony.

That wraps up another Olympic blogs! Only three more days in London!
