This is a beautiful photo from the Liberia Marathon 2015, which was held on November 8, showing spectators standing along the roadside staring at a lone runner as he runs by. Their reflections are caught in the water on the side of the road, bringing to mind the oft quoted Taoist proverb which says that it is only in still water that one can see his/her reflection.
“We cannot see our reflection in running water. It is only in still water that we can see.”Taoist proverb
The photo was taken by Thomas Lhomme. And, if you’re on Instagram, make sure to follow him to see more of his photos capturing every day life in Liberia.
