Sunday morning came along, and I wasn't feeling too bad. I hadn't got out of the apartment for long on Saturday and I was feeling restless. After checking my facebook feed, I discovered that the CIBC Run for the Cure was happening, and I packed up my gear and headed out. I took two cameras with me (a first!!), my T2i with a 70-200mm and the 5D with the 24-70. It was time to try some event photography!
Below is a collection of my images from the Halifax Run for the Cure 2012. After seeing all the people moving off the starting line I got a sense for just how big the run is, and also how important it is.
|Who are you running for? This was an entire table for people to put down their thoughts, in pink, purple and cyan coloured sharpies.|
|The run took place all over the commons area in Halifax, including the public gardens. With so many runners, police shut down some sections of streets.|
|These guys were powerhouses, as they should be. Props to the fire department for donning the pink and running for the cure!|
|Custom pink boxing gloves, just for symbolism? This is serious stuff! I think this is an awesome idea!!|
|Cheering on a pair of runners as they approach the finish line!|
|The pink carnations are a nice touch! |
|The emotions at the finish line were absolutely amazing. I'm happy to have been able to capture even a fraction of it.|
|A small photo booth was set up for teams to get together and get a group shot taken. I kind of snuck in on this one but it helps to show the spirit of the event.|
