    Sydney AP Cricket Team

    Yesterday a few of the Sydney AP members attended a Christmas get together and mini shoot session.
    We had a good turn-out of the usual active members but would have loved to see more new faces turn-up.
    I am sure that those that did attend had as good a time as I did.

    We chatted a lot, laughed a lot, ate plenty of food (Ness those strawberries were delightful and Lynn those chocolates were yummy ), shot the Homebush Bay wreck late in the afternoon but, the funniest thing was when we got our old bodies on the field and tries to play a game of muck around Cricket.
    There is no better way than trying to hit or chase a ball to be reminded just how much we have changed over the year. (Ok I'll say it "how bloody old we are getting")

    Following are a few snaps of some of our our "Cricket Team" members in action.

    #1 Danielle (Ness' "Sunset" ) daughter showing us how to hit a ball.

    #2 Ness' hubby having a hit with a nice straight batting action.

    #3 Ness in action. Need I say any more?

    #5 And last but not lease Pater (PeterB666) busy fielding ?

    Looks like a great time, would love to attend one sometime

    Peter, that thing looks like it would require its own postcode?

    Kym,
    We had good fun and one of the hits went close enough to Peter for him to catch it in his "catching device" but well age does slow us down a bit.

    MiniFighter,
    We have a lot of fun when we get together, it would be nice to have you join us. Maybe we can arrange a future meet near Gosford or The Enterance some day. ( Just had a thought, Sommersby Falls may be a good spot to meet.)

    It is a pity Darey didn't get a shot of the big one I had in reserve.

    Great photos. Must get mine processed - there are some interesting head shots in my lot.
    Cheers

    My photo-mojo has gone

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself... but then again, the Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 is kinda fun.

    I must say,
    I think the Aussie cricket team were spying on our game, as some of the strokes, Clarke, Ponting and Hussey were playing over the last few days were very similar to those shown at our match.
    Also i think our bowlers took notice of Danielle's bowling action as well..
