Ariyoshi, kickflip. "I really like the crosswalk; it adds a really interesting element to it -- almost like a reference to The Beatles' 'Abbey Road.' The kind of rock-star pose, in a way, of the guy doing the kickflip: he's throwing his arm out and pointing his fingers to the sky. I'm pretty sure this was taken in Japan. There's really good depth to it; otherwise, it's simple." -- Alex Hillinger
