Well it has been a long time since we had one of these right? Well we’ve decided regardless of the result of tonights semi against Murray, we’re celebrating the fact that old man Fudd made it this far with the draw from hell.
So here are a few (okay a LOT) of my favourite pictures I took at AO2013. Again I’m pining for that photographer media pass one day…but until then I’ll have to be content with just hitting a lot of other people in the head with my giant canon 70-200mm F4L.
HAVE WE RECOVERED? Well not really, I’m still celebrating a little bit every morning with a post wimby win happy dance. Seriously I’ve never celebrated my own achievements this much, what is with this man?
Anyhoo, Dootsiez has kindly given me permission for a bit of celebratory FPF today…so ENJOY!!!
It was going to be the entire tournament but after wading through 60 pages of Daylife and STILL not having made it past the final…I gave up…the following are of Final/Post Final only.
Are you feeling a little low? Thinking the final with Novak and Rafa just won’t do it for you? Well hopefully some pRon will make you feel a little better and keep you energised once you decide to swear off tennis forever after the end of AO2012…or until Davis Cup starts up in 2 weeks time.
Now I was only able to grace AO2012 with my presence for 2 days and thus only saw Princess Rog a few times but hopefully I’ve made up for it with the sheer amount of photographic spammage I made.
Now, I’m pretty short, 1cm shorter than Francesca Schiavone…or so Wikipedia tells me…so after a giant debacle whereby I was sticking by Roger’s OWN practice schedule on Court 4 and waiting in the hot hot sun for over an hour…douchebag decides to turn up on Court 16 (which is like 5km away) and the only reason I caught him was because I decided to saunter over and say hi to some RFcommers.
For those who haven’t had the privilege of waiting out for a Federer practice session in the scorching Melbourne sun…let me put it this way…if you’re not there at least 45min before his scheduled practice…you ain’t getting a front row seat baby…and thus have to fight through a 5-9 deep crowd (if you’re short) just to get a glimpse. And this is when being an aggressive photographer with a BIG lens…comes in handy…
At first…it was pure hold the camera up and spam…I couldn’t see shit…I just hoped my camera could…
Yeah douchebag even looked good without been seen…is that akin to if a tree falls in the woods does it still make a sound type analogy? Anyway…i dunno, soon I had a relatively clear line of sight anyway…
The above photo btw…is possibly one of my favourite photos I’ve ever taken…I’m blowin up that baby and making it into a NIKE JUST DO IT! poster or some shit…I should probably sell it to other worshipping fangirls…or I should just sell it to NIKE, in fact why doesn’t NIKE just hire me to take photos of him for their campaigns…huh? huh?
ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED??? Well here’s some more pervy stuff…
Lashes..and Chest hair…completely unintentional….I SWEAR!!!!
Well I hope you enjoyed that…and I hope it made you feel slightly better about AO2012 in general. If you liked my photos, the rest from the tourney of Wogie McFed are here, here and here. Also if you really really like the pRon that I give you…petition AO2013 to give me a media pass or something…or even better maybe ask RF.com to make me their official Photog for the next Aussie slam…cause you know it’ll result in more stuff for you guys.
I’ll try and enjoy the final as much as I can tomorrow night, but for now Wog and I will both bid Adieu!
