Slaptap Photo Drop: 006 Chris Leaver – Cross Fishbrain
The Sixth photo to hit the Slaptap Photo Drop is of the boss man himself and was taken during this year’s trip to Strasbourg, France.
The photo came from a rainy day session at Strasbourg’s premier trash park. We had been blessed with an amazing first day of skating but unfortunately day two provided nothing but rain. Nathan had the smart idea of heading to the trash park that was located in the outskirts of the city. Our host and guide to Strasbourg spent most of drive to the trash park playing it down. In the end though what started off as a last resort end up being loads of fun and possibly the best idea.
Everybody loves a good old-fashioned grind box session and for once my knees were letting me play. I was having so much fun that I nearly forgot to actually shoot a photo. So before we left I got Chris (who at this point still hadn’t got a single photo) to do a Cross Grabbed Fishbrain while Niko, Nathan and Connaire chilled in the chairs provided. Perfectly capturing a cool trick but more importantly the very cool setting for a fun rainy days skate in Strasbourg.
These photo’s were taken by Sam Cooper using a Nikon D800 and a 50mm 1.4 Nikkor Lens with Two Canon 540EZ Speedlites and Pocket Wizards as well as a Canon AE1.
