Alastair Shaw’s Photographs: 5. SAAA 1500

For all the photographs that are taken at Scottish Championships, we seldom see a series taken of the same race.   One of the great things of Alastair’s pictures is that he finds the spot, doesn’t leave if but takes the pictures as the race develops.   Take this short series of the 1500m  at the SAAA Championships.   It starts with John Robson and Nat Muir prowling around waiting for the start and is followed by three photographs of the race – taken from approximately the same spot of the athletes at the end of lap1, lap 2 and lap 3.   Main characters are Robson 15, Muir 2, Ian Archibald 6, John MacKay 24,
