A Young Triathlete

A triathlete makes the biking turn during the Greater Cleveland Youth Triathlon.

While shooting the swimming, running and biking of the Greater Cleveland Youth Triathlon in 2007,  I searched for an interesting shooting position during the biking portion of the event.  I found a hairpin turn on the biking course which allowed me to shoot the bikers while they were coming toward me, turning, and moving away from me.  This photo stood out as it shows the biker glancing ahead while making the turn.  From this point in the course he could see the riders ahead of him and behind him at the same time.  I suppose you could say he felt the same way about this spot in the course as I did!

About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
