Fluid Motion


Seattle has a new skate park in the Ballard neighborhood that appeals to children, teens, and adults alike. I got a bit of "Dogtown" north as I watched skateboard enthusiasts drop into the bowl and wheel around the walls like effortless poetry of body, mind, board, and motion.

Oh, I must show this to my 12-yr-old grandson who is a skateboarder. Love the kid's tatoos.

Wow, Kim, this is a terrific shot! So full of energy, just makes me want to stand up and go rollerskating myself!

greetings from Katowice, Poland :)

That's a very cool photograph; nice framing, the truncated view creates a feeling of fluidity and speed. Love it.

Superb action photo!

This is very eye-catching! If I had been there, I probably would have tried to get the whole guy in the picture. But this puts less emphasis on the person and more emphasis on the movement. Great capture!

Very powerful photo Kim. Well done. Have a nice weekend.

Kim said...

Thanks everyone! I did capture an image of the entire figure, but cropped it to provide a more interesting view "a la Bob," and to provide a larger leg/board image. Blogger has not worked for me for two days. When I can get those issues settled it will post more images on More Seattle Stuff.

Robert said...

Excellent pic! The whole skateboarder would have taken away from the image. I should be in Seattle now!
