Ghost runners

THEME DAY: FEET • Bonifacio Global City (BGC) in Taguig City is one of the fastest-growing mixed-used upscale land developments in Metro Manila. Running seems to be a popular sport among the residents of BGC's many condominium towers. We were about to end our day at nine o'clock in the evening yet the runners were still out in full force. And all I caught were their disembodied feet.

A spectacular way of interpreting Theme Day: feet... and no more.
Great image.

Laurie said...

Hilda, this is SO COOL! What a splendid interpretation -- those ghostly feet are wonderful. Great choice for theme day!

Layrayski said...

Hilda, I bet you didn't think you'd have a future city daily photo theme in your hand when you captured this scene =) nice!

Don and Krise said...

Excellent shot Hilda. Very inventive. Love the golden tone to the shot also.

Jilly said...

Ah so original Hilda and such a lovely atmosphere to your shot.

Shantaram said...

Oh, no, what did you do with the bodies!!

Very nicely done, Hilda, and a very happy anniversary to both of you today!

Now THAT is a perfect theme day! I need to get out my tripod... Love this photo.

Hello Manila feet! Philipino feet meet other feet! Greet night feet, walking feet and exploring feet! People feet! Where are Hilda feet? Such a FEET treat on your Manila street! EAGAN feet greet from my Minnesota street!

Your May 30 photo of the dancer in the ballet also would have made an excellent choice for the feet theme day.

Nice one! It's good to see a night shot of feet!

Halcyon said...

I love this photo. One of the best feet choices I've seen so far. There's something about the "ghostie" effect in pictures that appeals to me.

Happy theme day!

James said...

Cool and creative shot. Where you jogging too?

J.C. said...

Ha ha this is a good shot, Hilda! Only the legs, without body! Spooky, spooky, spooky!

Happy Theme Day!

If you did that purposely, you are a genius photographer...if it was luck, you are still a genius photographer because there is no such thing as luck in photography...serendipity, maybe, but not luck.

Wonderful artwork!

Bergson said...

Warning! I see all of the feet

Ken Mac said...

jogging, walk with your pet, cycling or simply anything. this place is a great environment for now as it is not yet filled with buildings. soon it will look like makati.

PJ said...

Great work, this is what makes digital sooooo cool!

Julie ScottsdaleDailyPhoto.com said...

Hilda, great technical shot. I like the vanishing and active feet and the city scene with buildings and light. I am glad you enjoyed the Native American dance feet on my site.

Tash said...

The idea is ingenious, Hilda.
The photo splendid. Congratulations on a superb TD post.

Ghost runner and a few shoes? :)

Avignon said...

Very subtle that foot!

A famous french photographer (who ?) made a famous photo of a runner as well : we see only the foot, the rest of the body is in motion blur.

George said...

What an intriguing photo. It's a wonderful picture and fits the theme perfectly.
