From the archives comes this from one of our trips to Michigan -- a skateboarder at a park in Muskegon. The weather is improving here day by day, although now rain is quite likely. Have a wonderful Thursday, everyone!

This is beautiful, Monnie. When I shot at a Philly skate park, I had to find ways to "modify" some of the rather obscene graffiti on the walls. Some of it actually made me stop breathing!

Nice Action Catch
Have never shot this activity. Looks like an ambulance run waiting to happen.
Survived the Little People glad to have some FREE TIME AGAIN.

This is one of those shots where everything comes together. For me it would be sheer luck, but I think for you it was a matter of talent with a camera. Love this action shot, the pov and the composition, that lighting that supplies the shadow of the skater, beautiful clairity, you even got that fence in the picture perfectly. A winner my friend.
