Photography and Archery...

...two hobbies that I haven't been able to do much of recently.

I am about 7,000 words into a ~15,000 word dissertation for my degree, I am pretty much eating, sleeping and working on the damn thing. It's due in a week's time, and I'll have a few days breathing room before I have to revise for my four exams ...maybe I'll go take some photos then.

These photos are from a day spent in a field last June. I took a few random photos of the abandoned industrial farm equipment and other surrounding objects, and a friend of mine took photos of me shooting:

I started archery about 4 years ago as it was one of the only university societies that interested me at first. It was exciting and had a fairly challenging learning curve, not to mention that my dad had a very nice professional bow for me to use.

I will upload some other photos in some future posts.

FIFTEEN THOUSAND WORDS? I can barely do 700 :(

Scrogglez said...

Good luck on those 15k words

ThirteenCats said...

Used to do archery back when I was about 10-11 (so about 20 years ago) and wish I'd kept at it

parasites said...

Archery looks fun. I'll probably try it at least once before i die.

Marquall said...

love the photos +1

2e1hsb said...

My other half used to do archery as a kid, until he really hurt himself (ripped a tendon in his wrist and has never gone back). I shall have to show them the pics, he'll get nostalgic.

bruno said...

nice bow!

Jordan said...

Photography=badass
Archery=equally as badass

Dave said...

ed said...

Trolske said...

Great shots, but what is on the last picture? This metal stuff thingy.

Dorningisbloggin said...

Archery is great fun!

Team Panda said...

dude that is a long report. The longest paper ive ever done was around 2,500. I can't believe that it's possible for a teacher to grade papers that long. By the time they collect everyone's work, they have a stack of papers that equals a fat ass novel. good luck though.

Titan of 2012 said...

Long report! Archery ftw!

Flodström said...

Good luck with that report. I just wrote one with about 1700... and I thought that was much...

mmmpieohyeah said...

dude archery is awesome! I have a bow myself, though I don't take it competitively

Jim said...

I am not good at archery, it has a learning curve that takes time. Good luck on your paper!

fit4life said...

i LOVE archery! i want more pictures!

mindlessfrk said...

I always wanted to do archery, it looks pretty awesome.

Matt said...

Hope you do well in your exams. Good luck with your dissertation! Look forward to seeing more from you.

LaserDollars said...

Nice post man, looking awesome! Good luck!

Zombie said...

Good luck on your dissertation! :D

daniel said...

Good post.

jblogger45 said...

sweet!

polyesterr said...

incredible!

Xiism said...

More pictures of the actual target.

And no cheating! Want to see if you can actually hit anything with that thing :P

Dave said...

good luck with the dissertation!

Remi said...

Well it's not difficult to physically shoot the arrow of course, but to hit the target THAT far away is impressive. I used to do archery every summer as a kid, pretty much shot at a target less than half that.

Lou_BRK said...

I've always sucked with the bow.
A video would be bad ass broo

freightblog said...

interesting photos and good luck with your exam.

Kaenbyoucat said...

Cool, I used to do some archery back in the day. My biggest issue is that I'm not very strong, and the pullback strength on my bow was like 85lbs. So I had quite a few issues pulling it back and holding it long enough to aim.

Aram said...

archery always interested me but never got into it, looks awesome though

The Radical Chemist said...

Nice bow, and I feel you on the thesis. I wrote my prelim exam just over a year ago (52 pages single-spaced) and it sucked 1 whole month of my life down the drain.

Shona said...

Whaaat :) Pretty awesome!

Michael said...

I just tried archery a few months back at my friends place, so much harder than it looks. A lot of respect for those who are good at it.

Alphalpha said...

Those are some pretty sweet photos, I wish i could shoot archery lol.

Zach said...

Badass pictures, I wish I could've gotten into archery.

Lhosreiff said...

I love Archery, even though I suck so much at it.

thenitefalls said...

School is a lot of work =/ I'm in the same the boat and I have to say archery is EPIC

Intraman said...

Necroticism said...

Those are 2 peculiar hobbies.

evldmn said...

You are my hero, seriously, I love bows and crossbows, never shot one though, BUT I PROMISE myself I'm gonna start soon.

The Game said...

I remember when i was making bows as a kid, that was so cool
i would like to try a professional bow tho

Andy Stockdale said...

my mates recently got right into professional archery and crossbows, he often makes his own, and holy moly theyre powerful! i had a go at using one once and i have to say it felt pretty good haha

Frosty said...

Nice pictures, and archery is definitely an interesting profession. Plus you'll totally be ready for zombies

JayPower said...

These pictures are amazing, looks like you got skills at archery aswell ;D

Just Me said...

sweet shots.

M@tTy said...

i used to do archery back in the day, i realy enjoyed it

Kenzo said...

School sucks, glad I'm out of it.

AD said...

Sounds like you had a nice day taking photos!
Please check out my channel too!

Careface said...

Looks like you had a good time outdoors! Never wrong.

Mike said...

Nice photos mate - Very cool hobby you have there

fabio_2007 said...

good luck with the report

oldschewl said...

... lol, these pictures makes me miss my bow and arrows. I used to do archery as a young man. Where I live now there is no straight piece of yard long enough to shoot. Unless it is plastic with a suction cup at the end.

Jake said...

I'm terrible at archery! Keep getting better, though.

Clint Mullins said...

I'm super bad at archery. But actually, the last time I did that was when I was quite young...

Birchris said...

looks great. Tried it once, was good to try, but i wasn't any good at it.

dende said...

I have to admit that im to dumb for archery. The string always hits my arm ...

KatoFinance said...

Very enjoyable to read about thanks!

James said...

Wish guns were never invented and people still used bows!

DanZel said...

I also do archery. but i stopped a while ago

Bart said...

nice bow, ive got a similiar one.

modernb said...

Sucks that you've been so busy lately, but it'll all be worth it :D Cool photos

Xzib1t said...

Gosh I'd love to learn archery.

tomatoshadow said...

I only had the chance to shoot once or twice in my life, as a kid, not for very long. I wish I could do it more than that!

Born_Disturbed said...

Always wanted to do archery, more fond of the crossbow though, nice pics regardless ;)

Jamal Crawls said...

very nice

Psicon said...

love it!

Jonathan said...

That was a great day my friend!

PackScoot said...

Stop shooting your arrows!

Finnish your dissertation!

Triper said...

I must say i am in shock! Bowing must great fun! i will search for more about it, in my town.

Jonny said...

I was in the Archery club in highschool. Was never that good but it was enjoyable.

Antonio said...

i'd love to try doing some target practice with bow and arrow one day

B Jeezy said...

i was just thinking of getting a bow

bigoryx said...

how much does this bow cost?

A Kid At Heart said...

I miss archery. Such an awesome sport and hobby.

Zeek said...

I am terrible with a bow. Awful. But they are cool!

Kevin said...

Tried archery before, i'm not that good but i can see the attraction :)

Jose Cuer said...

Wow, archery? That's really badass - I tried it back in primary school and I was really bad it...

randomer said...

That's a really good skill to have for a post apocalyptic world. Learn to make your own gear and you'll outlive most of us.

L-shift said...

That's a great combination.

Blogging Skater said...

i love archery, nice photos too

N4M3L3SS said...

cool

Ed said...

I tried archery but never could get the hang of it. Nice photos though.

Xiism said...

Glad to see the bow isn't only for show! :P

Even though there is only one arrow in the yellow field haha :) More practice!

The Game Store Guy said...

Ironically, this is perfect timing. I'm actually really excited because I should be picking up a long bow from a friend of mine who has to switch from a right handed bow to a left handed (long story).

Jack said...

nice shooting!

MarkeeTeeVee said...

Nice shooting mate! (both referring to the pics and ur archery)

Gaston said...

Dude it would be cool to read that dissertation since you've been spending so much time on it. I used to be pretty good at archery, but I haven't been down to a range in the past 4 years. Work has a way of getting in the way I guess.

Good luck with the paper.-=

Gaston

eraizer said...

It makes me nostalgic! I think back when I was a child I save a lot of competition archery.

Thanks you dude.

Awsum Stuff said...

Love archery ! was never good at it but its a brilliant sport if you are :) Best of Luck with it

pixel said...

cool that you are using a recurve instead of a compound

FunkyDuckman said...

very cool. I've always liked archery. We'd have a week course about it every year in grade school. It was pretty great. That sort of club is unheard of in colleges around here though, far as I know.

Toto said...

next time youll hit the yellow! :D

Lunarchy said...

Archery looks like a lot of fun. Wish they would have offered a course in it around here!

Michael said...

Cool stuff!

The Piggie said...

nice shots!

Benji Radman said...

not a bad shot :)
