  • Joseph Rotindo

    Joseph Rotindo said (12 Oct 2009):

    whoa...pete...when you capture a feeling, its so much more than being "about the image".

    so i'll have to say, this is more than just photography, because until you're on a board, racing down a hill at god-knows-what speed, wondering if you're gonna eat it or not, you just don't know what its about.

    this is iconic.
