Howard Lao's photo of the day--August 13th...

LONDON—Throughout the IAAF World Track & Field Championships, former University of Washington hurdler and current photographer Howard Lao will be contributing photos and offering his thoughts on the competition.

As the world championships conclude, paulmerca.blogspot.com wishes to thank Howard for his work over the ten days here in London.



I followed the team around on their victory lap, and caught this photo of Allyson with flag. It's a gamble though because once you are track side you are met with signs, and a distracting background. Luckily there was a gap and with the prime Canon 400 lens I was able to capture this image. It's one of the biggest images from this meet as I was only 15-20 feet away from her with the lens. 

EDITOR'S NOTE:  As we leave London, Howard and I wish to thank both Canon (Howard) and Nikon (Paul) Professional Services for their assistance over the ten days of competition. Both Howard and I were able to use some of their best equipment to supplement our cameras and lenses to bring you these images from the IAAF World Track & Field Championships.
