Cheetah Attack

A D.-V.A.S. jammer (aka prey) fights off an attack from a Death Track Doll sporting a cheetah helmet while an onlooking zebra referee hangs back.

This is another shot from a recent Toronto Roller Derby match last weekend.  A lomo preset was used to add an interesting effect.

P.S. Sorry for the wildlife references… the image just reminds me so much of a cheetah hunting prey with zebras in the background.  No offense to anyone, the outfits are cool!  Too many nature programs for me, I think! 😉

The Jammer and The Pack

I attended a Toronto Roller Derby match last weekend.  The Death Track Dolls vs. The D.-V.A.S. (Deadly Viper Assassination Squad–pronounced ‘divas’).  In this shot, the jammer (with the star on her helmet) leads the pack (the rest of the blood-thirsty skaters behind her) in one round, scoring a few points.

The match was quite entertaining and I highly recommend attending.  I liken it to a human form of NASCAR, but it’s all-women and they’re on roller skates. 🙂
