Great Fun Shooting Photos at Burnaby 2012 BC Seniors Games

It's been a blast being a volunteer photographer for the Burnaby 2012 BC Seniors Games.

The official photo stream is at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bcsg/

I haven't seen any of my photos up there yet, but volunteers are super busy!

Here are a few shots from the Opening Ceremony on Aug. 22. My job was to be up in the stands on the right side
with a long telephoto to cover things from that angle. Other photographers were high centre and several were roving.

RCMP sergeant, RCMP horse, and RCMP dog were a great hit
on the way in from the parking lot!
