Composition: Fill the Frame!

Challenge #15 in the Ways of Seeing series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
Beginning photographers have a tendency to keep well back from their subject. The acronym SCUFI (Shoot Close-Up For Impact) was coined to remind novices to get in close and fill the frame. Using a STANDARD FOCAL LENGTH lens (between 35mm and 65mm equivalent), demonstrate your ability to get in and fill the frame with your subject. Be careful not to crowd the frame, just get in close to prove you're not afraid of the subject. (Note Additional rules.)

101st place
Although the colors are bright at a fair, I decided to shoot in dynamic black and white. Like most kids, my son is fascinated by bikes and you can see he really enjoyed this ride!
