2007 was the year that Denver was the city with all the snow. We spent weeks combing the city and it's endless sprawl of suburbs for spots. As is often the case, the best spots end up being right under your nose the whole time. This alley was just a few short blocks from where we had been staying. The landing is in a parking lot with a fence in front, something that can barely be seen from this angle, but seemed so important to me that I actually chose a wide-angle shot next to the fence as my A-angle. The photo here was taken by a second camera, that I placed on a tripod and triggered via radio remote. You can actually see me in the photo shooting. I've shot a lot with second camera over the years, especially at street spots where it's easy to bring extra gear in the car vs. carrying into backcountry. In that time the 2nd camera has delivered here and there, but rarely did it "outshoot" the camera I was holding, or the perceived A-angle. In this instance, the 2nd angle not only stole the show, it completely saved the shot, as the my go-to, can't-miss angle was complete garbage butt shot. The remote camera was a 5DMK1, not exactly the fastest frames per second, so triggering that camera you just kind of had to be lucky on getting one good frame near the peak of the action, instead of fast camera that could blast 10 frames, and you'd just hold the trigger and know you'd end up with something. The fact that he's framed up perfectly between several sets of poles at the height of his ollie is perhaps the luckiest I've ever been shooting. If only I'd also bought a lottery ticket that day.
