ARCHIVE 240 – SHADOW OF A CHAIR, ON A WINDBREAK

D700 with 70-300 Nikkor at 210mm; 400 ISO.
UPDATE: I can still remember taking this picture. We were on holiday in Cornwall and crossing a busy road on the seafront in Penzance, with traffic was coming from every which way. It was only five years back, but maybe I was a little more spritely and alert then than I am now – and of course I was still working, not yet retired, and maybe retirement has slowed me down a bit – which is not necessarily a bad thing, especially if it means that I am in general more relaxed – which I am.
Anyway, whatever, we were crossing this road, through all this traffic, when this visual rose up before my eyes – and without giving it a second thought I stopped dead in the middle of the traffic, raised the camera, took a couple of frames, and carried on. I must have been mad; at least, I hope I was.
