So yesterday, I was having a lazy day, due to having a day off in the middle of the week and the weather being absolute crap recently. I was minding my own business when the ‘facebook pop’ sounded, and Usher was asking me if I was heading down the park, I wasnt planning to, but I decided I might as well as it wasnt raining for once.
Usher asked if I’d have my camera, kind of a stupid question really, but I assumed he wanted some pictures, so after I waited down there for about an hour because he is a longggggg cat, I got some pictures of him, after I got the rest of my photos for that night, which meant I was basically taking photos in the pitch black, but here they are never the less.
Feast your eyes upon the Usherbot.
Well these pictures are an anti climax really, James iced the whole of this ledge, so I set up to take a picture, and I jinxed him by saying “is this going to be another pedal hang five fiasco”, which basically refers to a time I spent about 2 hours sitting on a cold floor because James was trying a pedal hang five across this ledge and kept catching his back tyre when dropping off the end, and he’s a perfectionist, so I kept having to get another picture because he wanted the one he pulled.
Now, I was joking when I muttered these words, but his hub guard kept getting caught and he was either going into feeble or looping out at the end of the ledge….then he fell off, onto his bad arm that he recently had surgery on….so we decided to stop before he really injured himself.
But I am a witness, he did pull it, I just havent got a picture of it, but here’s a couple from his last try 🙂
This boy has been getting increasingly good recently, and after coming 1st in Amateur at Budget Jam 2010 he has been riding harder than ever.
Yesterday I went down the park to find out he had downwhip airs now, so after I set up some flashes to get a picture, he does it twice for me and thats that, no constantly slipping pedals or inconsistency with this mofo.
Then just as I was ready to pack up, we got a couple more shots, so here are the outcomes.
As always, click to enlarge.
Well, usually the day after budget jam is just as good as budget jam itself, but we live in england, so the weather is a piece of shit, and after the budget jam after party antics and the amount of alcohol consumed, pretty much everyone had gone home before I woke up from my hangover.
But nevertheless I headed to the skatepark to see who was there and ended up getting a couple of pictures.
Nothing special as I really couldn’t be bothered to set my flashes up, theres just a couple of the street boss Jake Murphy and some of Basingstoke’s newly appointed 1st place Amateur at budget jam 2010, Craig Sims.
So check them out, or don’t, I have nothing to prove to you, ok?
