Let your photos tell the story

Author:  Christina Heinle

Recently my girlfriend competed in the Arizona Ironman and while she was racing, I took pictures throughout the race.  Later when flipping through my pictures, I saw an awesome story unfold.  Here’s how the story goes.

Boy is running in the pouring rain minding his own business.


Girl starts to pass boy.  Boy wonders how is she so fast.


Girl passes boy.


Boy looks at his watch to see his pace and knows she is fast.


In the running world we call this “being chicked”.

Sometimes a story is not evident as you are taking the photos but can be seen as you review images after the fact.  This is what happened in this case and what a fun storyboard this makes.
