Split Finish


This young lady was kind enough to perform a SECOND split for me. I missed the shot when she did one for her mother, and she offered to reenact it. This was made at the Boston Marathon finishing line. People do all kinds of things there. They sit, kneel, stand and lie down. She was the only person I saw who did a split.

    I love her joyous expression, Chris. πŸ™‚ This was an excellent photograph! I didn’t realize people did this. Is this since Patriot’s Day? I wonder why I didn’t see this image before, at the finish line? Probably don’t watch the sports news enough! πŸ˜‰

      She was definitely having fun. This was made last Saturday night, two days before the race. They pretty much have the finish line set up all weekend and people come down to take photos. There was a reporter there from NBC but I am not sure they captured her split. Cheers!

        I am so grateful you mentioned the finish line is set up before the race and available for photo opportunities throughout the weekend before the race starts. One day, you never know, I will be back to Boston! Thanks, Chris for sharing some unique parts of the Boston Marathon.

    Great shot, Chris! I could do this too when I was much, much younger πŸ˜‰ But IΒ΄m not going to try and see if I still can, because I just know that not! πŸ˜‰ Cheers! Have a beautiful Sunday!

        LOL! Now I have to think of all those gymnastic shows and olympics that are broadcasted and should be added with this advice in big fat letters of warning red πŸ˜€
