Today in Copyright Infringement: Nwk Oly Pix

In another installment of Things I Would Like Even If I Didn’t Have To, I recommend the Visions of China, the Nwk photo blog from the Olympics. Three great photographers, lots of cool photos and sophisticated techniques involving large lenses, camera remotes and something called a “tilt-shift” thing that I don’t fully understand but produces undeniably cool shots of track & field.

Still, my favorite shot so far is one that Vincent Laforet took of Kichun Wang returning to his coach moments after after the Korean judo sensation lost the gold medal match. So often the Olympic photos you see are action shots, celebrations of bodies in motion, but I love this one for the emotions it shows:

Kichun Wang, in defeat
