If you want to see what perseverance looks like, look at skaters. They’ll work on a trick dozens of times before they nail it. Impressive. I connected with skaters Jimmy and Adam in Waterloo Public Square when there were some hard shadows that looked interesting.
I like this image of Jimmy in particular because I imagined him continuing to float up into the sky. Landing the trick really wouldn’t matter because, unexpectedly, he could fly.
This is Waterloo.
More pics on the other side…
I showed these to Brohemus and he called this one “X marks the spot”. Orange wheels are Jimmy, white wheels are Adam.
I like the balance of the four elements, half reality and half shadow in this one.
Adam. Thanks guys for letting me run along side you shooting photos. I only had the 24-70mm with me, so had to get in close to fill the frame and be able to shoot downward to get a clean background. Happily, I avoided getting a board in the face.
