Riding High

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! #10110279

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. #10110503
