Camera: Apple iPhone 4

Aperture: f/2.8
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/17

My hiking partner Alex stepping carefully through a flooded underground tunnel below Highway 406 near Thorold, Ontario, along the southern portion of the Bruce Trail. Here is a Streetview look at a grate at the top of the tunnel, visible in the photo.

Alex' posture reminded me of that slouchy Yeats poem, hence the title.

I got thoroughly distracted from DPC and things photographic for a good while, so I'm just seeing this photo for the first time now. Belated but heartfelt: congratulations on the first-place position, on the excellent score, and, of course, for the compelling photograph and capturing the story that it tells (even without the benefit of your comments).

I fave'd it last night. The more I look at it the more I really like it. The perspective, the grunge, the extreme dynamic contrast in the scene, I really love the color tones as well. It reminds me of an inked story board panel for a modern comic book of sorts. Very intriguing.

Congrats again on a well deserved blue ribbon Louis!

Love this image! Very creepy. Reminds me of the video game Resident Evil. I love the way you took this challenge and made it artistic instead of thinking you should try to capture everyday life just because it's a camera phone.
