Street Skater

This shot came from our BAPC field trip this weekend [sort of!] For our field trip we went to the downtown Houston area along Buffalo Bayou which included the cities newest state-of-the-art skateboarding facility. I was impressed with the facility, but at the same time I missed the more raw grungy look often associated with the rebel street skater counter-culture mentality. So for this shot I took a photo of one of the skaters at the clean, new [maybe sterile] park and added a graffiti wall background I shot for another BAPC assignment. Hope you like it.

Nice combination of subject and background. They go together. Why did you decide to go black and white?
