NF-SOOC-2018 - Day 14: In totally & Totally Indifferent

Chinon hosts a night-time half-marathon the second friday of September - I was rather taken by the contrast between this runner giving his all and the two policemen... one gazing into the middle distance with a bored expression and the other completely absorbed with his mobile-phone!

BoB... natch!
While real life passes on by, Darth Vader checks his smartphone!

Not sure if its a real funny fact but the shadow goes in 2 directions :) well, i like it... (does the policeman on the right wear a bullit proof vest?)

Great action shot! Fun observation.

I like the action you captured. The one policeman looks to be decked out in riot gear. Hope that's not indicative of the mood around the race.

@madeinnl He's just exiting the bridge over the river Vienne and the bridge is lit on both sides. Yes, the motor-cycle cop is wearing a bullet-proof vest - he's part of the rapid intervention group who can, and may have to, deal with any kind of emergency.

@randystreat Any event likely to attract a crowd might also attract terrorists, hence the presence of the Rapid Intervention Group.

@vignouse I'm so naive. Thanks for the explanation.

Agood action shot with many side stories

I like the choice of movement in the runner and the good focus on the policemen in this light!

@maggiemae Thanks Maggiemae - I've also got panning shots of the runners but the story in this one needed the police to be in sharp focus and the runner clearly, err... running!

You're right Richard, that juxtaposition is great!

A very ambiguous photo. I was most intrigued by the scooter. Have any of them used it?
September 15th, 2018  
those 2 police look like a little bit of a run wouldn't hurt them at all - shouldn't they be keeping fit? :)
