Photo of the Week

Posted by LCS


Barry with a Switch Ollie at Somerset skatepark. This picture was taken as part of a Penguin Books campaign to promote audio books over hard cover books. It's much easier to listen to an audio book while you skate than to read one.

Remember if anyone else has any pictures they want posted for Photo of the Week send them to

"An audiobook is a recording that is primarily spoken word. It is often based on a recording of commercial printed material. It is not necessarily an exact audio version of a book."

@Anonymous: Some Multimedia & Print photography firm. You would need to check with Barry for the name of the Photographer.

Thanks for the comment Hairil.
It almost looks fake right. But I did actually clear both boxes with my switch ollie.

J/K- It is just a stationary switch ollie on top of the box. The hardest part was olliing with the book held close to my face.

The secret is the expensive fisheye and the angle. The camera was positioned on the floor.
