Throwing a calculated amount of caution to a light breeze, we invited Maddi to our first new shoot since February
Even if I shot once a week every week for the remainder of the year, this would still be the fewest photographs I’ve taken in over 35 years. We all know this year is crazy, though, and there’s no point in looking at it as anything other than an anomaly.
I first met Maddi back in February. We talked then about doing a shoot, but before we could get anything scheduled, everything shut down. Since her shoot was outdoors, though, I figured it would be easy enough to sufficiently social distance ourselves and still get some good pictures. I would use a long lens, she wouldn’t do anything that required her flying over me to get the shot. There was no air to grab. No pipes to ride. Nothing dangerous. Just a cautious amount of fun.
The surprise for the day was that Maddi brought along her best friend, Mr. Crowley! No, he doesn’t pull the board. If anything, he’s a bit frightened of it. But he’s quite photogenic and posed nicely while watching Maddi skate.
That’s it. No shocking surprises. No one naked (this time). Just a fun but cautious trip to Major Taylor Velodrome. Hopefully, this is a start for getting back into the groove a bit. We’ll see.
