Artist's Description

Look closely at this one, there’s a double take of a skateboarder doing an ollie. This version is the original – basically untouched and straight from the camera.

Image taken using a 6 MP Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500

It took a few shots before I even managed to get the skater in the photograph. You have to roll pretty fast when you ollie up to a rail like this one, so you are not in the frame for very long – just a fraction of a second. I clicked, but by the time the Flash fired the skater was out of view. So I had to take the same photo 4 or 5 times until I worked out what it sounded like as he skated towards the rail. When I heard the skateboard reach a certain distance on the right of the shot I clicked. By the time the flash fired he was just about one third of the way into the frame and I got my shot.
