Stunt Boys

I ran into a nice bunch of teens visiting the landmark Stadium Merdeka. One of them had a dSLR. As I stopped to observe, another boy climbed up the gate. Thought he was going to pose with a peace sign (V-sign). He did. Then without warning, he flipped and somersaulted across the roof. This is a stacked double exposure of that moment  I photographed from the car.

Asked them later where they were from and the shy and polite kids said they are from a school in Puchong. They rode a motorcycle to town to sightsee. I am not sure if this is safer than street racing though.

Other Moral Of The Story: For street photography, keep your camera in continuous low burst mode instead of single. Or 4 fps in the case of the OM-D. Its high burst of 9 frames per second mode is even better but it can shorten the camera’s shutter life if used indiscriminately.

Olympus OM-D, ISO 200, f11, 1/400 sec.
