Keep your Cool


The story behind this shot.

It was a Saturday in Paris, a fun run had begun around the Eiffel Tower, I was busy taking shots and then decided to wander down to a coffee shop and have a sandwich and a capuccino.
i was sitting with a friend near the window watching competitors run by,then, all of a sudden I could hear shouting,all heads turned, and I grabbed my camera from the table and took this shot through the glass as pushing and shoving began.
The altercation started because the organisers had locked in all the traffic for around two hours and this chap wanted to get his car out but they refused to move any barriers, then spectators got involved,but fortunately the chap in the suit gave them the finger and stormed away before punches were thrown..................just another day in Paradise :)
