Man Down by ash Man Down by ash
Another photo from the skateboarding competition last Saturday in Meanwhile Park, London. This guy is a South African (from Pretoria no less) and was notionally skating for South Africa so as a fellow South African I was naturally hoping he would do well. Unfortunately, he missed his footing during the finals and dislocated his knee, putting an end to any hopes of that. "These things happen", he told me afterwards.

In retrospect it would have been bright to have composed the shot lower -- and perhaps even included the skateboard :D (Big Grin) -- but "these things happen", I guess.

Yes, including the board would have lifted it, but it's still a good shot of a key moment, capturing well an injured competitor's distress.

Good portraiture, and poor guy.

One gets the impression of lots going on around him.

I would have liked to see the rest of his legs, however.
