It was a pleasant surprise when I found out my weekend off coincided with my husband and kid's next Karate Comp.
One of the things I find hard about my job as a press photographer, is that I'm so often out taking photos of other people's kids sporting events and missing out on what my kids are doing.
Though I still managed to be taking photographs the whole time it was really nice to see how my (and other) kids are developing in there strength and focus in this sport.
Not that is was just kids out on the mats today, it was good to see the skills of the senior women on display in the Kata and the intensity and control of the men's Kumite (fighting).
