When Hajime Nishi wants to know how he did in a marathon, he doesn't look at the large clock ticking off the hours, minutes and seconds as he crosses the finish line.
Instead, he looks at the camera he carries in his fanny pack.
On Saturday, Nishi, a native of Kyoto, Japan, had a very good day at the Shoreline Sport and Spine Oktoberfest Marathon.
"I took over 100 pictures, which means I enjoyed it,' Nishi said with a laugh. "If I only take 20 pictures, that means I did not have a good time.'
