La Lumière de Victoire! (Weekend Reflections # 195)

Budapest, Hungary   (The lamp above his head is the reflection, it seemed to be in the perfect place.)


I saw this poster of  Teddy Riner through a window in Budapest. Big Teddy is a Frenchman and the 2012 Olympic heavyweight judo gold medal winner. Two months after I took this photo, Teddy won another gold medal at the 2013 European Judo Championship in Budapest. 

I called him Big Teddy because his height and weight are 2.4m (6ft 8in and 131 kg (290 lb)!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Ah, shining on a star athlete? :)

The more I look at your shots and play with reflection shots of my own, the more fascinated I am! This one seems to take away any sense of depth perception...of knowing what is where. And combines two things - so completely not intended to be together - that end up telling a tale. So glad I found this space...and love how international it is as well!

I'll bet Big Teddy would appreciate your blog post today, James!

Norma Ruttan said...

I like it even though it's rather an incongruous light to be shining on him! that's rather tall for someone in that sport, isn't it?

He's in the spotlight, where he should be!
