Expressions, Malta Marathon 2014 – Part 2

Participation in the Malta Marathon has been increasing over the years with people of all ages joining in the challenge, although not every one enters with the aim of crossing the finish line among the top 10.
Most enter for personal reasons, maybe to raise money for charity or as a challenge after recovering from a serious illness. What ever the reason, it does not change the fact that it is a tough marathon. So what goes on in their minds while their muscles ache?
This year i focused on capturing participant’s expressions. Some smile for the camera, a few are busy texting while others appear to be lost in a world of their own.
What ever is happening definitely is a boost that leads to the finish line.

Well done to all participants!

About Alan Falzon

Photography has been part of my life since before I was born, my father was a keen photographer who had invested in his own developing equipment. This passion grew with every issue of Life and many other news magazines I used to read instead of doing school home work. Unfortunately I never got the chance to work for Life Magazine, Time Magazine nor any foreign news paper but I have always carried some sort of camera to capture that “Kodak Moment”. Those magazine articles taught me that only a few shots are needed to tell a story, so when combined with the cost of film and developing I learnt to take my time to think and observe before pressing the shutter. Traveling around Australia for a year in 2005 was the biggest learning boost for me. A backpacker on a tight budget, film/developing much more expensive Down Under, living in areas rarely visited by foreigners and getting around on my bicycle I patiently and carefully documented the experience. Australia is a photographers paradise!
