This weekend local amateur photographer Geoff Caten and I provided volunteer event photography services for the Southend Half Marathon on the request of the organisers Havens Hospices. We were more than happy to give up our time to capture the event and a few subsequent evenings to process and upload the results.
Apologies in advance if some of the photos are not as good as they should be however it was raining quite heavily for some of the time and cameras and rain don’t go well together. Also apologies if we missed snapping you. We are lone volunteers and sometimes need to answer the call of nature.
You are here for the photos I’m sure so I will cut to the chase. Find below links to all the albums of photographs on my Google Photos site. All the photos are low res (mainly for storage reasons) and are technically copyright to either me or Geoff. That said I’m not coming after you if you use mine without explicit permission on social media although you will be in my bad books if I catch you doing anything else with them. I’m sure that goes for Geoff too.
If you like the photos and/or if you would like full size versions of any of them (we will edit the ones we send out for optimum brightness / contrast etc) then all you need to do is email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the photo numbers (preferably the image file refs eg DSC_0867.jpg or alternatively the album name / photo number) and I will email or dropbox them back to you in return for a suggested donation of £10 to the Havens Hospices via my JustGiving page.
There will ultimately be an album on the Havens Hospices Facebook page of a selection of the best photos from the event which I will add here in due course.
Here are links to the albums on Google Photos (except where noted):
