Moving Through The Shadows In Cap D’Ail

When this week’s request for a shadowy image came through via WordPress, I recalled this shot, one of several failed high ISO long exposures tests I took in early October 2012, soon after I bought my most recent camera.

This was taken near the entrance to a pedestrian tunnel along the Mediterranean coast in Cap D’Ail, a small town that sits on the French Riviera bordering Monaco to the west. I parked myself on a bench near the entrance and waited patiently for someone to pass by and through. The chance came when this shadowy ghost-like early evening runner jogged by.

It’s hardly a great shot, or even very good, but I liked the general tone. So it’s my Pic du Jour, the 361st (!!) straight.
