This extraordinarily pale, tall, thin young man was at the Edgartown Bridge on Marthas Vineyard. I was photographing someone else when I turned and saw him like this. Two frames and he was gone, into the water. I like how awkward (yet peaceful) this photo is. He appears to be alone, but in reality the bridge was a mass of jumpers that day.

    I agree with R Duncan, the symmetry and "awkwardness" is great. Nice one.
