Surendra Sajwan was at the Santa Monica Pier with a photography group on April 10. As the group was discussing photography techniques, one of the park rides at the pier caught Sajwan's attention.
He noticed a parkgoer in sunglasses climb onto Inkie's Scrambler by himself. His broad smile and confidence drew Sajwan, who began taking photos of the rider, composing the shots to blur his surroundings.
Sajwan used a Nikon D7000.
