Handplant, Orange, Calif. — Shooting photos at skate parks can be challenging. Usually kids are flying around left and right, getting in the shot or knocking over your flash stands. But it's always fun to try to make a cool photograph, all while trying to overcome the chaos and make do with the situation. Omar and I got lucky on this day; there were no kids in our way, and he was knocking out some proper handplants. I found a perch to shoot from just above the vert ramp for a cool vantage point, and all the ingredients to make a decent photo fell into place! (Photo: Anthony Acosta)
