End of 2009

by Gerhard

Can you believe it is the end of another year. It feels like every year is going by faster than the previous one. It was just the other day that i was taken photos of the test between SA and Australia. That was in 1997 at Centurion in Pretoria. Last week i was at the same ground taken photos of the game between SA and England. This is twelve years later.

Here two images of the two games. The first one is of Hansie Cronje batting in 1997 and the second of Jacques Kallis batting. I can’t remember how many runs Hansie got in that game but Jacques got 120 runs in this innings in 2009.

In 1997 i was using a Nikon F5 and a Nikon 600mm F4 lens. This year i was using a Nikon D3 and a Nikon 400mm F2.8 lens fitted with a 1.7 converter.
