Photo of the Month – September – Martin Sidorják – The Fall


“I like the place where I took this photo, or rather I absolutely love it. I’ve been going here about seven years, and each year I stop by here with my camera about fifteen times. I had decided that I would check out the Prague 50 cycling race. I was expecting a long snake made up of cyclists, whom I was expecting to appear on the horizon. I was really lucky, and all the long years I’ve been visiting the place paid off for me. The cyclists all spaced out regularly suddenly broke apart as one of them fell. The moment was being watched by random passersby and a dog. I was really lucky that I didn’t have to adjust the image in any way: that’s just the way it turned out,” says the author.
