Photo of the Week #249
Last week I attended the opening reception for The New York City Marathon: The Great Race, an exhibit at the Museum of the City of New York. The show features over 100 images that capture the challenge and excitement of the world’s largest footrace, including this photo I took in 2009 while shooting for The New York Times. On Sunday over 50,000 participants from around the world will gather in Staten Island at the crack of dawn for the start of the NYC Marathon’s 45th running and 1,000,000+ spectators will line the route all the way to Central Park to cheer them on. And you’ll feel extra lazy for sleeping in.
Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, 16-35mm f4 lens @ 16mm, f5.0, 1/30th, ISO 1600.
