Basketball Player Dunking from the Rim's Point of View

This court is right across the street from one of the greatest beaches in the world. Huntington Beach, California. I lived one a few hundred yards from this court and it looked as though it has been there a long time. The rim was rusted red and had cracks through the metal. The net was hanging on by a thread, and the court even had grass growing on it. A photographers dream come true. Also Branden being the model helped as well. He is a talented athlete who can dunk with great accuracy. Its a good thing because for this shots I was balanced on a latter just under the basket. The basketball player would jump and come flying toward the camera almost killing me on every shot. Thankfully I never fell and we got a great shot from it.
