Dave Hawthorne Photo: Wayne Hartman

This was taken on a rooftop that’s better than some skateparks. But it’s a pain in the ass to get on. First you have to climb on the first building, then walk across the top wall for eight feet. On the day I shot this the cops came and we all tried to run. As any photographer or filmer can attest, I was the last one out. By the time I ran across the wall to the second building, everyone tossed their bikes and jumped. Jumping off buildings with camera equipment sucks. Anyway, Wayne Hartman spins the bars over one of the big hips, warming up, right before the cops showed up.
