Photo of the Weekend: London Marathon

This weekend's Photo of the Weekend comes to us all the way from the far side of the Atlantic. Ryan Hall throws down a 2:06:17, earning respect from everyone except the kind of folks foolish enough to keep snakes as pets. I think you know what I mean. As evidenced in the Photo, Hall knows what I mean, too.

The runner-up photo was, in fact, snapped just one moment later, and narrowly misses weekly honors...

What I find most impressive about both of these pieces of photographic craftsmanship, was how the photographer was able to, ya know, capture something that Hall was saying verbally in a still image with no sonic accompaniment. Now that's talent.
