Shadow Shot Sunday 2 - Shoreline walk/roll

Shadow Shot Sunday 2 highlights an event last Sunday that was fun and also involved wheelchairs. This event was the seventh annual fund-raiser Wheel-A-Thon hosted and run by my last employer (and now Alcam customer) the Center for Disability Rights in West Haven CT.
The Comcast videographer and writer Patti query the event leader
Prizes for the leading fund-rising teams
This event is a team walk along the West Haven (CT) shorewith an option to travel the course in a wheelchair. While there, I was taking pictures with my newre used IPhone 3G (son Cameron gave me his old phone when he purchased a new phone). With enough sun, the pictures worked out well, although my thumb got in the way – live and learn
A leader leads, so the ambulatory Director starts the event
Awaiting the results...

The walk was held at the West Haven shore walk along Long Island Sound. The weather cooperated as it was a stunning day for a walk/roll. Besides being a fun event, shadowy effects were all over. Patti blogged about it and she and Allegra signed the waiver and walked the course too - participants and photographers had a great time...

Hey Harriet said...

I bet that was a fun event! You captured some lovely shadowy photos Ralph! IPhones are fun to shoot with as they're so compact and handy. I seem to use my iphone camera more than my regular camera these days. Enjoy the rest of your weekend Ralph :)
