We went go-kart-ing last Sunday (by we, it means, they went while I walked around taking pictures ;-)). The boys were so excited thinking that they could drive on their own, which of course, not allowed. So they had to be happy sitting on the passenger seat, one at a time.
I am quite happy with what I captured, particularly the one above. I managed to get the panning sort of right. Focusing on them, while the foreground and background are blurry.
By the time they were done (8 rounds for each boy), I also found out that I will never be a mom of the future Schumacher, as their first comments were, “Mama, I felt so sick after the 5th or 6th round!” :-). Well, at least I found out early enough 🙂

I was actually contemplating whether to title this post “painstaking panning” or “pain in the a## panning” (but that might be not too good for reputation), so I decided to just put the event’s name as title.
So, husband and kids were participating in this local triathlon. As always, apart from being the slave of the family, carrying and preparing this and that, I am also THE family and friends’ official photographer (not that I am complaining).
BUT, what I still don’t get is, when it’s time for me to take panning picture of my husband, I just can’t can’t (have I said can’t?) get it right. Pictures of other people always look technically better. Definitely more panning practice needs to be done.
And these are pictures of other triathletes :
