Warm evening in Milton Keynes

February 4, 2012


With the clock ticking towards 2.30am – somehow my ‘professionalism’ .. of craziness, makes me get this entry out there for the morning…. Friday evening usually means basketball photography for me, and so it was this week as well. All three games would have been close enough for me to travel to, so it was […]

36 hours and 3000 miles That’s how my weekend started, which means that in the last 36 hours my average speed has been about 80 miles/hour.

Day 1 – EuroBasket 2011

August 30, 2011


Flight number 27 – and EuroBasket 2011 As always, I do try to keep a ‘blog’ of sorts while in these bigger/longer tournaments, so it is time to start another one for the 2011 EuroBasket in Lithuania. While catching my early bird flight from Birmingham to Brussels, I was counting that this leg of my […]
