As I walk down to the waterfront, all I am thinking is that I hope I don’t have to shoot purple again. It would be nice to have a new color to mix things up, but in the end, I’m stationed at the 4k mark and the organizers have decided that the color station will be purple. Sounds good, I guess. I protect my camera with a rainproof bag, some gaffer tape and a bit of duct tape, then proceed to walk around the race pavilion. The event is nowhere near as large as South Portland, however it is at least home. Armed with a monopod to ease the burden of running handheld all day long, I delve into another colorful race… The purple people eaters decided to completely cover me at the end. Note that the colorant tends to stain once it mixes with sweat. A few of the resulting photos are below!
