In and Around Wimbledon

In 2009, I had a contract to cover the Wimbledon Championships. Here are some of the sights, mostly off-court:

The Face Of The Security:

Face Of The Ball Boy:

Face Of The Drummer:

Face of Azarenka:

Strains Of Competition:

At the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club where the Championships are held, there is no Court Number 13:

The Umpire:

Wimbledon in not all about Roger Federer, Rafeal Nadal and Novak Djokovic. It is also about:

Disabled Players:

Veterans (Martina Navratilova):

... and Junior Ladies (Noppawan Lertcheewakar (Thailand) - Junior Ladies Singles Title Holder, 2009):

Day of Men's Single Final at the Wimbledon. Seats inside the Center Court are all taken up so people throng the Tim Henman Hill (now renamed Murray Mound), to watch the proceedings on the giant TV screen:

Some don't care much for the games - they come here to sunbath:

.... and some come for Strawberry, Champagne &  Romance:

The Hairless Spectator:

The Veteran:

The Novice:

The Old:

The Young:

The Photographer:

I love the English streets - they are lined with colorful flowers. Pots of flowers are placed in front of their homes. So very pretty!

An Example of the dour English Humour:


  1. Very enjoyable set. Thanks, Yeshey.

  2. aue , its wonderful that Bhutan's most accomplished photographer has another feather in its hat .. and while i am at it " hats off to you " !

  3. The Photographer - if I heard right even went to China to cover some Tennis competition. Not Bad for a Bhutanese. Keep it up.

  4. Hi Anon,
