Skateboarders, San Francisco

This Month in Photo of the Day: National Geographic Photo Contest Images

The short length of a two-day stop in San Francisco motivated me to visit the city by foot only, trying to get a higher chance of capturing street instants. I came across these two skaters while walking through the Mission District.
