The Running Man by andycoleborn

The Running Man

Went and had a look around MotorExpo, a car show at Canary Wharf after work, lots of very flash, very expensive motors as you can imagine in a place like the Wharf.. I took a few shots and will probably upload some onto my 3rd album over time..

Photographing cars isn't something I'm very good at, so I might go back one night this week for another go..

As I was heading back to the station, I couldn't help but notice the great reflections in the windows of the main tower...

I still had my P&S in my pocket, despite getting the DSLR back, and quickly took a snap of this guy running towards me.. Seems he's given me the thumbs up for the shot :-)...
Excellent! love it

great capture Andy, street photography is much easier with a compact, this looks like a scene from a 1960's spy / tv cop / detective series....:)

to me, this photo looks like it would work for this challenge: http://365project.org/discuss/themes-competitions/6845/artist-challenge-9-vivian-maier
just saying, :-) This scene and what he's wearing is kind of timeless, right? Great action shot. :-)

Brilliant composition, Andy! The man, the reflection and the shadows on both plus the black and white treatment.

@paulremulla cheers mate.. was especially pleased getting the shadow just right
@5unflow3r yeah will do, thanks for the reminder
@phil_howcroft haha yeah, can see what you mean from the 60s... but you are right, it's so much easier to be sneaky with a p&s..
