Volleybal

Here is one specially for Tati.  Next to where my son was playing badminton in the interclub mix competition, a volleybal match was on.  I thought: see if I can make some decent photos of that action.  Exif under the photo.
My son won his doubles and mixed doubles, his team wins the series, the second in the ranking cannot get up to their level of points anymore.

Deze is speciaal voor Tati.  Mijn zoon speelde badminton in de gemengde interclub competitie en in de zaal er naast werd een volley match gespeeld.  Ik dacht: eens zien of ik daar deftige foto's van kan maken.  Je vindt de exif hierboven.
Mijn zoon won zijn dubbel en gemengd en zijn ploeg is kampioen in hun reeks na deze overwinning.  De tweede in de rangschikking kan ze niet meer evenaren.

Boat Race 2

These two lovely girls decided to put on a little show for me.  I was most impressed.

Table Tennis Ostend Masters 2

Look how high this player throws up the ball in his service.  Amazing.  Funny sport table tennis.

Table Tennis Ostend Masters

So, yesterday August 12, TTC Drive Oostende organised the 9th edition of the Ostend Masters.  I was invited as official photographer.  Not an easy sport to photograph, these guys move fast and the distance is shorter than in badminton.

Serving is Jean-Michel Saive.  Jean-Mi is a monument.  5 olympic games.  European Champion in 1994.  Vice world champion in 1993.

Rowing 2: setting off

Another fine morning for rowing today.  I discovered the club has a sunny terrace where they serve hot coffee and cold beer.  Against the sun, but that was what I intended, with these 3 rowers setting off.

Rowing 1

My youngest boy tried out rowing for the first time today.  He is going back tomorrow.

Funny: I have just watched an episode of Midsommer Murders, it was about a murder in a row club.  Oostende is well known for its water sports.

 

 

Please don't misinterpret yesterday's post: I don't plan to stop my Beaufort photos.  I just meant that I will end the Koksijde photos.  Time to move on.

 

Ah, yes, I have tagged all my Beaufort photos.  So if you want to see all of them in sequence, all you have to do is click on the Beaufort tag at the bottom of one of the relevant posts.  You will then get a page with all my Beaufort photos.

Matthias Raepsaet

Meet Matthias Raepsaet.  An exellent B1 player in the -17 age group in West-Flanders.  Matthias was the favourite in my son's category.  He beat my son in singles, but my boy played a good game.  Matthias is a year older than Tom, so Tom still has a way to go.  I like this photo I took of Matthias in the match against Tom very much.  I like his posture and the concentration on his face.  I was following his movement so the background is nicely out of focus while Matthias is very much in focus.  Go for it, Matthias, I love to see you play.

Jelske Bitten by the Bug

Believe it or not, she was actually taking photos of herself.
I took some great girl photo's today, some of them outside, so hang in there, I've some better quality stuff coming op (not meaning Jeslke, of course, there is not better, I'm referring to the photo quality).

Jelske Thinking I will not take a photo...

...when she closes her eyes.  Silly girl!

Jelske watching badminton

 A while ago I wrote about publishing some girl photos.  I'm very much into art, being a number one fan of the coastal Beaufort art initiative here in Belgium.
But maybe I need to introduce more variation to my blog, more people.
Regular visitors to my blog already know Jeslke Snoeck, I have published a badminton action shot of her before.  She is a young A player with a great future ahead of her.
Jelske is a very sympathetic young lady.
Here a shot of her pretending not to notice that I was taking her picture while she was watching a match.
Have a good week end, all of you!

Bieke

I seem to remember that I promised some girls.

This is Bieke.

 

 

Bieke is a young lady who smiles a lot.  I like that.

I have some funny shots as well.

 

To anwer a question put to me yesterday in the replies: no, my company does not pay for pictures taken of my car on the motorway.  I have to pay those myself.

Marathon 2

Change of plan: I did not leave for Paris today.  They've decided they need me in Brussels.
Nice to be wanted.
So I'm posting another photo of the coastal marathon that ended in Oostende last Saturday.
Near the finish this one young lady is suffering, the other finds it fun.
Or is she just smiling for the photo?

Marathon 1

Rode my bike down to the seafront yesterday and discovered the coastal marathon.
From De Panne to Oostende, a half marathon, to be exact.
Some of you may know that I love clouds.  So this marathon was a great experiment to catch runners, beach, sea and clouds.  Not easy, because there were a lot of people about.  But I love a challenge.

Learning to surf

Went and had a drink on a terrace overlooking a manmade pool of seawater earlier this week.
This is actually an overflow basin for the harbour of Oostende.  They breed Oysters in a part of it, and it is well used as a recreational area for learning surfers and sailors.
Very soothing, relaxing.

Kitegirl II

Love kites : the technology of flight.  Love girls piloting kites.  No wonder this is the second picture of a girl kiting on this blog. But this time the kite is in the picture as well.  And a good view of the beach right up to the Casino.

It was very windy that day.

Beach Volley: rear view

I know what you are thinking.
But have a good look.  Taking into consideration my hobby, how could I not take a picture of this?  And I cannot help where they publish the advertisement?
And I love the composition, the two girls walking in line, the two arms, each holding a bottle of water...  No, they didn't pose for this one.  It is a snapshot.

Beach Volley: great action at the net.

Such a shame I cut her foot off, poor girl, stood a bit too close to the action.  Or she came too close to me, whatever.
Love this fast action.

Beach Volley: low action

This girl is a teammember of the losing finalists.  She exercises great control, that ball goes where she wants it.

Beach Volley: another one bites the dust

In Belgium we have an expression that says "Biting in the Sand".  The proper English expression is in the title of this post.  During the semi finals and finals of the Belgian Beach Volley a witnessed lots of competitors hitting the sand.

The kite or the girl?

What, one should go to the kite festival for the kites.
Now wait just a minute.  Am I then not allowed to show my appreciation for the way the kiter handles the kite?  Such grace, such technique, such style...
OK, I give in, she looked good.

Love beach sports.
Hope they organize the world championships beach volley in Oostende again this year.  I'll be there with my digicam.

Tennis anyone?

Passed the Ostend Tennis Club on this rainy evening.
Some players didn't let the light rain spoil their fun.
That's the spirit!

Ropeskipping

Demonstrations of not so popular sports today in Oostende.  The Rope Skipping Oostende club was showing their best.  Great dynamic stuff.
