Haha - a super action shot - is Ange going to fight you using her right fist or her pan whereas you are using the pen to...oh, it looks very dramatic- and I hope Chad (s. Trim's blog) and yourself will survive these actions ...
Bill Phillips: This was at a skittles night we had with Acorns. none of us was any good! This is Heather, one of the volunteers who will probably kill me if she sees this grin
A bowling action yet to be perfected?
Bill Phillips: I have seen better

I think what you are trying to say is that you can either be proficient or ruddy hopeless
Bill Phillips: I thought I was being creative
I think you have been very creative , honest.
Bill Phillips: It was pure accident but we were all helpless with laughter looking at it on the camera afterwards...i suppose you had to be there
What a load of waffle Phillips ... but I have to concede that it did make me snigger with envy (if that's possible)
Bill Phillips: We all had a laugh at it

One man's failed action shot is another's creative blur. I think it fits the latter admirably!
Bill Phillips: That would assume a deliberate act Mike grin

Yes, it shows just how quickly the wall was moving; a perfect example.
Bill Phillips: You are thinking outside the box again Alan
I think you are really being nice to Ange, who told you not to dare take a photo of her exercising.
Bill Phillips: It isn't ~Angegrin It is Heather who is one of the volunteers at Acorns
You can also point and shoot.
Bill Phillips: That's what I did!

Not the most technically proficient photograph I have seen from you, but it does certainly give the impression of motion!
Bill Phillips: Whirling Dervish comes to mind
