    Good pics, shows the event quite well and the emotions there-in. I like the photogenic girl in the first one center framed; also the mixed feelings of people's faces in the second.

    I really like the photos. The top one is terrific in black and white, and I agree, the girl makes the photo particularly good. The second is great too - Iím enjoyong zooming in on the different faces seeing their different responses.

    Hi Catherine,

    Thanks for commenting, yes the second image was a cropping dilemma; I ended up only trimming a bit off the bottom and left side as I kept seeing individuals that made for a better overall look.

    Love these, very well done. Interesting the difference in the "runners" in #1 vs. #2. The guy with the devil tail in #2, ugh just a little too much
    There's a girl running the opposite direction in #2, maybe to avoid tip in my speedos guy?
    Love the girls expression in #1

    Love the first shot; f/4.5 just right for capturing the people but not the bricks.

    Modern times, most are carrying cell-phones!

    On Sharon's point: there was an advertisement on TV some years ago that showed a guy wearing "budgie smugglers" (Speedos) emerging from the ocean and walking directly away into town. As he walked a voice-over intoned "togs... togs... togs", but as he got about 100m from the beach the voice reached a high pitch and screamed "undies!... undies!... undies!"

    This event is known for runners in unusual, some say "weird" outfits. For example, although I don't see one in either of John's shots, runners in full chicken regalia or turkey suits are not entirely unknown. Example the flamingo hats of the two ladies attending to "Speedo-man." Speaking of Speedo-man, this area is also known for hardy locals enduring cold weather activities, a la a New Years Day dip in ice choked Lakes Erie and Ontario. This guy was merely showing his macho side. It appears this shot was made at the very beginning of the event, as ppl were warming up, hence the woman who appears to be running the wrong way. On the other hand, she could have been running the race backwards. Note the official photographer with back to John's camera perched on his collapsible seat. Although many runners take this event quite seriously, many also are out for pure fun, hence the dress-ups.

    Thanks, John, for sharing.
