WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement had me sifting through my photographs. I selected this one from a high school track meet. The runners are just beginning, and one of the referees just holstered his starting pistol.
Locals schools are competing for Field and Track, and numerous schools are present. The crowd is watching with significant intention.
Each runner is steadily building his or her strategy, and the movement dictates the next step–faster, slower, hold back, inch forward. It requires a real mind and body duet that must work in synergy.
Every choice builds movement and placement in the pack. And minute-by-minute the formation shifts as a runner moves into the position that can make the difference in the team’s outcome.
