I have been to a lot of “All-Comers” meets in my life, but the Santa Monica High School All-Comers on Saturday truly exemplified that some All-Comers are for anyone. Truly anyone. And anyone just doesn’t mean any skill or experience level, as the photo directly below illustrates in a single capture. Anyone also means any age group – young or old (see the last two photos below).
It was great to be outside shooting a track meet again, that’s for certain. And being able to get more than a few shots of an athlete I’ve watched grow up, Tyler Burns, was the icing on the cake. Tyler specializes in hurdles at Saugus High School, but ran in the 100M and 300M yesterday, winning the 100M (shown below) in a PR of 11.52. Well done, Tyler.
And, I was able to shoot with this new Sony A1 for the first time. Holy crap, what an amazing camera this is. I was not even using a master lens and the continuous eye autofocus worked flawlessly, even on the moving runners. There is a learning curve, however. So I’m going to use the plethora of all-comers meets coming up in the next few weeks to get in some practice. This is going to be fun. Here are a few more shots from the day.
