Gravity's Waiting.

You have to admire this older skateboarder keeping his skills sharp. Even more amazing than watching him execute his daredevil manuevers was his calmness when he knew an attempt was going to fall. He real grace was on display as he calmly readied himself for each calamitous fall back down to earth. Or hard concrete, as the case may be.
Perfect composition, too!

A great photo, I love his shadow too. Learning how to fall is part and parcel to skateboarding!

I guess if you can't take the falls you can't skateboard?

@domenicododaro @lenanau @louannwarren @pistache @seattlite @caterina @koalagardens @kork @danette Thank you all for you most generous appreciations of this photo. I like it for all the same reasons as you. My only regret is that this angle obscure the boarder’s fave and this his age, as well. But the truth is that most of the younger people there at this time could not match him for skill or ambition.
