My good friend was performing at the Hollywood Bowl on the same evening. So I was only able to attend Exposure for a few hours. I managed to catch some of the Amateur bowl and all of the vert competition.

The evolution of skateboarding

Although the basic physical aspects of a skateboard remain pretty close to your old roller skates nailed to a piece of wood, the evolution of “skateboarding” always amazes me.

Hunter Long contacted me a few hours before this picture was shot. She wanted to take some pictures at Pedlow. We took some invert photos and some air photos and thin the process produced this picture. Just a few hours after this session Hunter was on plane bound for Hawaii. The next day I edited the photos from the session. After professing all the images that I felt she and I would both like a came across this “bail shot”. I this image along with all the good “make” photos. She immediately text back that she thought this image was funny. A lot of other people seemed to like this as well so next gallery i’ll add this one to the mix.
