Corredor de Mexico

ON Saturday night, as my wife and I enjoyed the ambiance leading up to the Boston Marathon, I spotted this man wrapping himself in a flag. (Another image of the man with the flag can be seen in the prior post.) I went over and asked him what it was. “It is the flag of Mexico.”, he told me. I met several runners from Mexico at the finish line that night. All came for the camaraderie and to make photos. This man was kind enough to let me make this image of him. (“Corredor” is the Spanish word for “runner”.)

    Great portrait, Chris! Did he give you his email so that he could have it too? You have an incredible talent for catching people at the right moment with you camera! Cheers! πŸ™‚

    So glad you provided the detail of country and his word for runner in Spanish. πŸ™‚
    This was a brilliant portrait and a kind face showing his interest in you, too. Thankful the race went smoothly as did many things over the weekend. It is a gathering of humanity, so many good people with generous spirits.
