I was watching this skater trying to get this grind perfect for 40 min. Every time he used to get near the bowl, I used to hear his heart beating (apparently, as I understood much later from his fellow biker, he had broken his ankle a few months ago trying for the same grind).
As I watched him fail time and time again, I started to leave. Just when I packed my camera, he pulled off his most feared run with a perfect grind and landing..
Although I couldn’t capture the joy on his face, this fall will always remind me of his triumph..
Perseverance paid off!

A few minutes ago:

Photography started with my travels to Europe. I started enjoying photography and little by little I started getting more into it.
I’m still a very very long way away from being even a skilled photographer.

So any comments, criticism and of course appreciation are welcome :)
