I like the shot also, just brings me down, like as I stare at it now....I picture his board transforming into a stick with a hankerchief made pouch at the end, carrying all his stuff...and maybe a train to the left of the beach, kicking him off the boxcar..and when u zoom in on his face, it ends up being moony...? I can almost picture him jamming out with a harmonica, all alone, with a can of beans, and a 40 oz.

not wishing to get on too much of a rant - but how the hell can 3 people give this photo a rating of 1 - you're either blind or just plain jealous!!!! sort it out !

I understand what you're saying about democracy Trident, and yes we have a right to vote how we please. But there appears to be a ''serial'' -1 rater going around, and for some reason negatively rates very good photos. But to only give this shot a +1 out of spite because you didn't like a comment that someone put is rather childish to say the least.
