City Daily Photo Theme Day: A "Bob" Shot

Photo & Text Copyright 2006 Seattle Daily Photo. All rights reserved, including reproduction or republishing.

53 City Daily Photo sites are featuring photos "a la Bob" today. Bob is a Barcelona photographer in our Daily Photo community whose work we all admire and whose penchant for featuring unique shots of humans in motion from the waist down inspired this theme day tribute. For my own offering today, here is a Seattle skateboarder beginning his drop into the bowl of a local skate park. To see several other of my own "Bob shots" (as Sally of Sydney has dubbed these waist-down shots), click on my More Seattle Stuff link.

I love this photo of hanging on the precipice. It gives me the heebie jeebies thinking about riding down that incline! (In my case, it would be crashing down.)

Randy said...

Nice pic Kim!

Great shot--although I think a couple on your other site were better!!!(the one with the shadow and the guy flat out with tattoos).
In answer to your question on my blog-yes I am a big fan of that band.The picture was taken at a gig last friday and I posted a top half pic on Monday!
