A new explorer, a new discovery

On my way to photograph the teacher of the year ceremony Thursday night, I could hear a skateboarder repeatedly trying the same trick over and over just south of the Dillingham Bridge. The sound is familiar to me because I spent much of my youth grinding on curbs and perfecting my kickflips, but back then boards were bigger and my bones healed quicker. What I really enjoyed about photographing Kyle DuBois was the fact that it was purely candid. He didn't even know I made photographs of him until I hollared down to ask his name. I was glad I waited because I might not of gotten this other image. I call it kickflip to text. It's definitely a sign of how natural and common place multi-tasking has become today.
