August 2009 - This photo has won the flickr Canberra Photographers' group "Best Action Picture of 2009" award.

 

Some people say that Gen Y or Z or whatever target this 15 year old represents are self-centred and not interested in others in any way, From my direct observation, either this kid must be unrepresentative, or people are wrong.

I was so impressed with his stunt riding while my 6-year old was in the playground next door that I asked him if I could photograph him - and the outcome was that he was delighted to help me and made the effort to make sure I got the picture I previsualised. Many thanks to you, whoever you are.
