This shoot was inspired by photo of the week topic Jubilation from WordPress. I know that these photos are being released two weeks after this topic. There are several reasons for this.

Firstly, I didn’t want to rush into the shoot and get a shot of a jubilant face or something so simple. I wanted to have a theme and tell a story of sorts.

Then there was the fact that I had to make and find the props that I would need to pull off the track race that came to mind when I thought of the topic of the week.

Finally, this one was somewhat frustrating. I had found the grey stones at Dollar Tree and purchased a container of them. When I was ready to set up I realized I needed at least one more container and the Dollar Tree is closed on Sundays. So I had to put off the shoot. I tend to take most of my photos on the weekend rather than during the week, so that miscalculation lengthened the delay by a week.

The theme Race to the Finish Line based on the end of a relay race. As someone who has never actively sought to participate in sporting events I would not have wanted to compete in something like this, but I know there are enough people who would choose to do so. It was also a great opportunity to use the Gym Outfit bodies.
