Morning Run

Morning Run. Taken from the window of a hotel room in Geneva (Lake Geneva is at the end of the road to the left of the picture). I have to admit it was a lucky shot. I was interested in the strong lines of the cars and the patterns in the shadows of the trees in the warm light at about 7:00 a.m. I thought it was the sort of scene that would have a judge suggesting there should be someone in the space in the road towards the bottom left corner. And just as I was starting to frame it a runner obligingly appeared in the centre of the road, complete with long shadow. I waited until he reached the right place, and pressed the button.

Technical: Colour negative film, Minox 35ML.
