Flickr a Day 355: I’m Board

As the series’ end approaches, picking pics grows ever-more difficult. I would like the last ones to be special, but finding them also takes more time than easily invested—got a new project coming, and there are family obligations as the holiday approaches. That said, the selection often is more than what you see and about the shooter’s larger body of work.

Nicolas Alejandro takes us back to the street, where he captures character with intimacy and gusto, making the final choice challenging but exhilarating process. In the end, I let yesterday’s skateboarder be influencer, carrying the theme forward. Coincidentally, he captured the untitled photo one year ago today, using Olympus E-M5 and M.Zuiko 17mm f1.8 lens. Vitals: f/1.8, ISO 800, 1/200 sec, 17mm.

From Buenos Aries, Argentina, Nicolos joined Flickr in June 2012. Reward yourself and skim across his photostream.
