Ready to Join?

In commemoration of Chinese New Year, I would like to invite everyone to celebrate by capturing actions during the " Protected content Winter Dragon Boat Festival" at Protected content on 24th January Protected content , Friday: the intense racing and the adrenaline rush, the splashing of waters by players in colorful uniforms competing in a Protected content distance sprint race in less than a minute. The colorful atmosphere, surroundings, the clouds, the Dhow boats around the area and the beautiful Doha Skyline surely will also be inviting to capture shots in a long focal length.

The race will start at 7:00 in the morning with 19 corporate teams and 6 premier teams participating. Corporate teams are those who practice only for the intended local race while Premier teams are those who practice regularly all year round and compete in races locally and internationally.

I will be full time with Photography group from 9:00 in the morning till the awarding ceremony of Corporate teams. From 1:00 in the afternoon onwards I have to attend also with Filipino group and at the same time I will be racing in the women's category of Premier race. If I am not in the waters competing you can find me in one of the tents.

So folks what are you waiting for, HIT that "Attend" button and be sure to SHOW UP to be part of this colorful festivities.

With your camera and other photography paraphernalias also bring along folding chair (optional) and H2O for hydration.

See YOU ALL there!
