Meet Ben

That young man on a BMX bike is Ben.  I met him back in October at the Arlington Skate Park.   In the shot above I placed my D300 and a 10.5 mm fisheye on the ground and had Ben ride over it in mid-air.  At first I think he questioned my wisdom at putting my camera at risk, but I was not concerned.  I had seen him do much harder tricks and figured the chance that he would come done on my gear was remote at best.   In photography perspective is essential.  I think the small risk paid off just fine.  My days of riding skateboards and such have long since passed, but I still get a kick out of seeing these guys do their thing!
