existential youth, photographic, 30"x40"

While waiting to meet a friend for lunch, in the area just off of  Wall Street recently, an ethnically mixed group of skateboard jumpers appeared out of nowhere.  They made several jumps off the ledge which I was privileged to snap into action and photograph as quickly as possible.  I have applied special effects so that the daring young daredevils are unrecognizable however, their youthful vigor comes through somehow even in these abstraction images.  I said a few words, "Can I take some pictures?" or something like that that may or may not have registered but they were kind and did some stunts before wandering off to some better location for their daring leaps.
