Thanks for viewing all, and taking the time to respond in kind words. It seems that there is a pic for everyone. I shot a lot of pics during the marathon, and it was very hard to pick a few to show. I would like to apologize for some not being able to view the pics yesterday, as the server hosting my photos was down for some unscheduled maintenance.

I did post a teaser pic last year, and I believe Richard (El Twitcho) hasn't seen it yet. Here it is again:

Ah. I remember this teaser from last year and like it a lot. Thanks for sharing all the "loonie" shots! :)

BB-Can't believe it's already been five months since then.

I particularly like #6, the color of his shoes work out enough to me to make his feet have flames coming off the back, sort of a fiery mercury. What do you think--was that what you were going for?

mson, eenorton, jim, thanks for viewing and for the kind feedback! eenorton, I really enjoyed taking the loonie shots, it made the day a happy one.
James, I was trying to capture fluid movement in a photograph. Nothing expresses it better than blur, I believe. I clicked a lot of panned shots using a slow shutter speed - most were crap but there were a few keepers. I am glad you saw what I was going for in the photo, sort of. To me it looks like a bit like Umberto Boccioni's sculpture, "Unique Forms of Continuity In Space". Sort of :)

Great shots BB. As an unfit person who would never dream of running a marathon, I'm amazed at how many of your shots include people who aren't completely lean and athletic.


Regards,
Simon

BottomBracket,

I wasn't familiar with your reference to Umberto Boccioni, but google is a wonderful thing. For anyone else similarly unfamiliar, I found this photo on Wikipedia and think the likeness is quite good! :)

Another must do someday series. You did a great job capturing the feeling of the event. Not much more to say - it's all been said before. Thanks for letting us see this through your eyes. Cheers.

Wonderful series of shots - I would imagine the juggler was doing that to take his mind off the pain!!;) Hypnotherapy!!

ChopstickHero, thanks! I used a 20d, 17-40, 70-200, and a 50mm for this series.

Wintoid, thanks for the comments! I won't say that running a marathon is easy, but it is certainly doable with a bit of training. It is also about the only race an ordinary person can join and be with world class athletes too. That said, you are right, there were a lot of non-athletic types, and they were having the time of their lives. :)

eenorton, I'm glad you see the resemblance to Boccioni's work :)

Croasdail, Thanks for the kind words! Actually there is much more to the event, the crowd of people on the sidewalk, bands playing, smiles and high fives all around, spextators egging on the runners, etc. Hard to express the whole feeling in just a handful of photographs......

Elisabeth, thanks! The juggler was pretty upbeat so his strategy works. This was at around mile 9 though, not sure if he kept juggling the whole way.
