Bupa 10K

The Bupa 10km took place in Manchester on the 15th of May and I was lucky that the 1km and 9.5km posts were just outside our flat. It did mean we got woken up at 7am by the outdoor broadcast people doing their sound checks, but was a great opportunity to get down and take some photos of the runner, both fresh faced at the start of the race and those flagging towards the end. Points for spotting the famous pack leader in the Men's Elite group...

Olympic Park Trip

Last Wednesday I went as part of a University of Manchester trip around the 2012 Olympic park site. The weather was a bit grim and we weren't allowed off the bus but I still got chance to take a few photos.

Beside the Seaside

More from Easter weekend in Whitby, including a dog in his element, a hungry seagull and Ross the seal...

We found this herring gull viciously attacking the remains of a fish and chip carton, making light work of the remaining mushy peas in the bottom...

This is Ross, a juvenile grey seal stranded on the beach between Whitby and Sandsend. When we came across him, he was being urged back to the sea after a (vitamin injection) by the East Coast Seal Rescue team and an encouraging crowd. It took a long time but he eventually made it, to cheers from the onlookers.
