Shot with an iPhone

March 31st, 2019 — As hurdles pictures go this isn’t the greatest but it’s still pretty good especially since it was shot with an iPhone which is all I had with me when I rode by during my morning bike ride. It’s a heat of the men’s decathlon hurdles at the UBC Open Track Meet at UBC’s Dhillon oval.
