Shadow of rider blends into board, forming a seamless line like the link between artist and brush, samurai and sword.

The subject and image stained into the concrete like gum, blood and energy drink syrup.

A busy background bustled and busted the bodacious shot our roaming photographer was looking for at last Saturday’s Shredfest in Decatur.

When zooming around for the perfect picture, unattractive or distracting items in the distance kept tweaking the frame.

Our photog went back to the technique of capturing a person or event without using the gross and obvious. The shadow of the fence frames the subject, creating a more balanced image.
