Ran before work on a Friday morning. Parked my car two streets up from the beach - there's a bit of a hill to hike back up. This swimmer and his friend were returning from their morning ocean swim. Friend had just gone off to the right to get in his car. Light is bold this time of year as the sun comes up! Processing is Snapseed's "Silhouette" preset on my phone.

I love those shoulders. He looks so lost. I hope the traffic light helps.

I'm hanging this in my fantasy gallery

i like this a lot ..
i find the posture emotive .. he looks almost downhearted .. dejected ..
thats the beauty of photography .. the camera can lie .. !! ..
if he is a swimmer he probably felt quite the opposite with all those endorphins raging thru his system ..
i'm loving your black and white process .. the high contrast .. the shadows .. everything .. this has a nixter feel about it which is quite a compliment .. :)
