A photographer gets in position for a close-up at the start of the Gumball 3000 during its København to Stockholm leg. The cars were burning some rubber as they waited for the green light. The shadow in the lower left corner was the guy in front of me moving into my pic just as I clicked it.

    Ok, you're just showing off... Absolutely wonderful! So moody, and the action is right on the brink. The headlights and red-light really add to the tension. So good.

    This is one of those photographs one could study for quite a while..the faces and expressions of those behind the smoke are looking at this schmuckazoid that stepped into your shot as if to say what the hell are you doin?...he looks like he stepped right in front of the jag and barrely escaped getting flattened into a pancake and ruining the front bumper.. on the otherhand, the bloke stepping into the shot adds a great elelent...GREAT shot J.L.

    I saw similar scenes in the 60s in the Haight-Ashbury, post-good-vibes era. Only it was people running through and away from tear-gas. Amazingly similar.
