The SOMA West Skate Park; Or, The Photographer As Crocodile (Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette)

Standard

Good Evening:

The new SOMA West Skate Park (SOMA = South Of MArket) has proven so popular with local boarders that they like to climb the fences at night and play in darkness. On Saturday around noon, I happened to walk past on Duboce at the right time, when a bright background combined with the shadow caused by the highway passing overhead to create silhouettes of some of the boarders and their observers. So, as my boy Cartier-Bresson was wont to do, I found a suitable post across the street, and like a crocodile waited patiently for the “Decisive Moment.” The traffic got in the way too often and forced me to delete most of my pictures, but these few turned out OK.
