Weekly photo challenge: Joy

This week’s challenge prompt is joy! After a particularly hard-fought tournament, these three medalists – good sports all – show their joy.

11-16 Good Sports_Edit

And other images of joy from this week’s challenge:

Foils

Fencing , like music, it has its own tempo, rhythm and phrases.  Watching two skilled fencers in motion is almost like a dance — a martial pas de deux.

FIERCE COMPETITION — No matter that one is a philosophy professor and the other a talented 10-year-old, the rules of foil help level the playing field.

Weekly photo challenge: Two subjects

The steel mesh of the fencing mask and the scarred guard of the sabre seemed to have all the ingredients for a photographic duet.

TWO SUBJECTS (I) -- Fencing mask and sabre.
TWO SUBJECTS (part 2) -- This time the subjects are history and horseracing. Random togetherness in the household library.

A sampling of interesting posts from this week’s challenge are below.
