It is raining here today so no going out and taking pictures, so I thought I would offer some humor.
This shot is on campus and one day I saw this skunk out for a stroll in the middle of the day. Everyone was freaking out, and I followed him and saw this guy walking his direction, and the skunk walking down the path. I realized that the skunk was going to make the corner about the same time the guy was going to reach the corner. Thinking to myself...this is going to be good. I waited and got this.

Humor is an underestimated value in photography!
You captured the situation in a terrific way. And it is the situation that really makes the picture. Well done.

Excellent timing.. I think the guy would have ran backwards on seeing the skunk. Thanks for sharing - Vikram

So then what happened?
Is it cheating to lighten the guy's face and skunk's tail a little?

hehe That guy is literally on his toes! Cool timing and I hope you got to zoom with your little coolpix… I wouldn’t want to be close to that scene!

Great timing achieved by careful planning and waiting. And works perfectly in B&W.
Just one suggestion: How about framing this to square format.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Brady...THIS IS SO COOL!!
I never noticed this before...I really like the workshop as it gives good detail to the corner you mentioned.
Is it normal to see skunks wandering around on the streets? I guess not if you followed him....so no surprised spraying from him then :) I'm sure this was really funny at the time...It brought a smile to my face - I like the b/w presentation too...
