Walk Of Fame

World number one tennis player Swiss Roger Federer gestures as he poses behind a plate bearing his name at the Basel "Hall of Fame" during an unveiling ceremony on July 16, 2009 in Basel. Federer's Wimbledon triumph last July 6 has seen him regain the world number one spot from arch-rival Rafael Nadal. Federer won both the French Open and Wimbledon to chalk up a record 15 Grand Slam titles, one more than Pete Sampras.

I cant help but notice this:

whoever took that shot is a gr8 photographer.

Talk of capturing an emotion and a phenomenon (like it or hate it) all in a moment... Poignant!

You know what they say..big nose, big .... **smile**

Anyway I think the big niose is a distortion effect as aresult of the proximity of Roger's face to the camera lens.
