PHOTO JOURNAL: Sam Cooper #41
The second month of 2016 saw Brian Barron come over to Bristol for a long blading weekend. I took off that Friday from work so that I could join Ollie Jones and Barno — aka the Barn Owl — to make the most of his time in England. This dirty bent barrier in Shirehampton was the only spot that got shot all day. Not that I’m complaining, I’ve wanted to shoot a photo with Barno ever since me and Smithy randomly bumped into him before the 2014s SlamJamm. For this one, Barno took some pretty nasty falls getting his Frontside up to Mute 180 out in some stupidly cold conditions, but we both agreed it was well worth it for the final image.
