Rugby 7s at the Padang
This is one sport I'm not familiar with. I'm more used to the American version that I have no idea why they called football. I guess going to school in Buffalo, NY, I was left with no alternative than being a Bills fan. Anyways, Rugby 7s is an annual Singapore tradition where teams from places as far away as South Africa, Fiji and New Zealand come and duke it out at the Padang, a field at the heart of Singapore business and government district. It's interesting to see the different style of play, like the hard hitting Australians, and the nimble Japanese.
I'll be honest, the two days I spent shooting this event really help me to appreciate the sport. Its fast, action packed and fun to watch. Much more fluid than the American version, which I'm still a fan of.
