Anticipating the Moment

I don’t like to take a ton of shots, hoping to get a find one of the action.  I try to anticipate when the moment will be optimum to shoot.

Here is one of a skateboarder by the Game Pieces public art in Philadelphia.


The giant dominoes are part of Game Pieces-

and the cropped version

skateboarder crop-going for the separation between the board and the bench as I am clicking the shutter.

See 3000 dominoes and the domino effect on an old Mr. Rogers Neighborhood episode.

  1. you captured an air shot! very cool! and I like seeing this photo because it reminded me of the other picture you showed us with the game pieces. 🙂

  2. What a great capture, Ruth! These guys amaze me and I shudder thinking of all the misses they must have endured until they mastered a maneuver like this one. Ouch!

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
