I often take photographs from my window but this time I was particularly lucky. I saw the Red Bull BMX team filming a video of their riders doing wheelies down the street. This, coupled with the 20 20 road markings, I knew would create an effective impact. 


I enjoy playing around with perspective in compositions so I paired this with a photo I took of my window sill – the same window I was looking out at the time of the first image. It creates this surreal viewpoint that I like. 


The contrast of the rider in the top right performing a smooth wheelie beside the other rider who looks like they could fall over overlaid on the 20 20 road signs could act as a visual metaphor for the highs and lows of the year 2020. 


2020 was a difficult time for many people but for me, it was a time when I was able to reset and a lot of good things also came from this time. Perhaps this image could be a symbol of shifting perspectives and trying to find moments of happiness in hard times.
