Brian Lotti photo

This photo of Brian Lotti appeared in Big Brother #2, I wish I could recall the photographer to give credit but I'm not exactly sure. I want to say it was Niko but again, I'm not 100% sure. Anyways, this photo is one of my all time favorites. It's not the trick, a simple noseslide on a curb. It's how it looks. The grimeyness. The way it was shot. I don't think I've seen another photo quite like this since. And even if I did I'm sure it wouldn't impact me the way this photo has. I like how you can see all four of the tiny wheels...both trucks...the board...both feet...and the curb (and the little figure inside the drain for good measure). I remember staring at this photo back in the day and wondering if the sticker/photo of the girl under the wheel was his girlfriend. This little detail has stuck with me too, I always have to have some type of sticker under one of my wheels. It's a must. 
This photo is one of the best ever.
