Title: Blacktop Calligraphy

About the Photo:

In Oakland California, when young men with powerful cars gather to show off to their peers with dangerous stunts and tricks you have a “sideshow”. After the action is over and the road is clear, their spins, pirouettes and drag races remain – recorded in curves and lines of burnt rubber that resemble strokes of ink-laden calligraphy brushes.
