Photo of the Day: Before the mark


Before the mark, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
As I watched the track meet, I conceived an image in my mind of runners bursting from the starting line as the upstretched starting pistol exploded in the foreground. This proved to be difficult to manage, however, as the angles were all wrong: I'd have needed a higher point of view to get both the raised pistol and the runners in the same frame. So I settled for this shot, with the pistol at the ready and the runners waiting for the "on your mark." The photo was originally in color, of course, but it looks far more dramatic in black and white, almost ominous even.
