To Ted's list of talented ladies who are photographers, let me also add
Helen Myall here in Australia. Helen and Alastair are both prize winning and
successful and you may have seen their recent Arctic photography. They are
off to do it again in the snow and ice in November, courtesy of a trip won
by Helen for previous work. Just don't ask Alastair whose photos his mother
has on display in her home!

>>>That's really a boys' club,  isn't it?  Not a single woman photographer.


Hi Tina, 

It may look like that, but honestly lost in the crowd are some of the most
incredible women sport photographers at any of these games.

Eileen Langsley, a UK shooter, retired now, was amazing. She'd put the fear
of God in guys when she'd turn up with her big glass slung over shoulders, a
300mm with camera and motor on one and a 400mm with motor and extenders or
longer. :-)

And she'd quietly slip into a spot and shoot every bodies ass off! Then
smile! :-)

One of the most gentle and pleasant lady photographers I know. But damn she
was good!

You of course dear Tina are the gentlest and most pleasant of them all! A
fine southern lady indeed! :-) Not to forget you are a very excellent
photographer! :-)

Guys read this as, "I'm covering my butt big time here when it comes to
saying nice things about lady photographers!" And notice, I haven't even
mentioned Sandy Carter's name. :-)
