Great macondo 2016-11-19 22:00

Hello Satyakki.
I think this is a very good b/w photo, very well cropped to create an interesting composition. Great use of shallow depth of field, and the blurry bit in the bottom left adds a real documentary feeling to the photo. I like the row of men's heads with the boy's above. The expression on his face makes one curious about what he may be looking at, but he is certainly holding on tight to his father during the hours of boredom and frustration. I've read about the 'demon' in the news services, and I believe this photo captures the whole subject very well. My favourite photo of the day, by a long way. I can't believe that after 144 views this is the first critique. What is wrong with people?

Smile To emka: Kentucky Derby

I suspect this is an apocryphal story. I also found out that she died the year after the Derby. Meanwhile, the talented storyteller was Leon Lederman, the former Director of Fermi Lab. I would have given an honorary doctorate to Secretariat and to Unbridled, let them be "Dr. Secretariat" and "Dr. Unbridled."
