  All Photos are my own. Sony A6000. "I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence I can reach for; perfection is God’s business.”

I've been there... in that single moment you feel a pull, hear a pop, collapse onto the track in excruciating pain. A burning sensation, your hamstring is torn. Your hopes are dashed and in that single lonely moment, complete utter devastation. I'm still moved now.... it brought back so many memories. I hope that he recovers and has another opportunity to shine.

Final training session done as we prepare for a big weekend of Athletics. I always encourage my children to just do their best. Sport is 60% Ability, the other 40% is mindset. Focus and aim for a personal best time, distance, Throw or Jump and don't worry about the placing. Hoping they can make the State Championships if for nothing else the experience of a major meet.

The famous central Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, built between 1863 and 1880 by French colonists, is one of the city's architectural marvels. .
Erected exclusively with materials imported from France, it is one of the most popular things to see in Ho Chi Minh.
.
Notre Dame Cathedral's red bricks arrived in Vietnam from Marseille, and Bishop Lefevre himself laid the first stone for the construction of the basilica in 1863.

Motorcycles and scooters are the life of Vietnam. It's hard to believe that they have 45 Million of them. One for every 2 people. They can be purchased from as little as 1,000 USD. .
I am so happy with this shot. Shooting handheld without a tripod at 1/20 sec.

You can find scenes like this all over Ho Chi Minh City. A warm early evening siting on the sidewalk listening to his favourite radio station and sipping on his Vietnamese ice coffee.

Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, built in the late 1880s by French colonists, is one of the few remaining strongholds of Catholicism in the largely Buddhist Vietnam 🇻🇳.
