About two weeks ago I took a trip to one of my favorite places in the entire city, the skate park. The heat was unbearable but, I guess when you’re having fun you push through it? I can’t believe how dedicated these young skaters are to come out and practice their craft everyday despite the intense temperatures. As always I had a great time. I met some talented new skaters that, surprisingly were more than happy to give me a few shots, as well as a very cool fellow photographer. What was intended to be a quick stop on my weekend outing turned into a long meaningful visit. In total I believe I stayed out there for about 5 hours?! At the end of the day I was both dehydrated and tired, but very happy. I had more fun than I expected, plus I made some new contacts. That’s what I consider a successful day! Here are a few of the images from the trip:
I took my son out recently to practice riding his new skateboard. This should prove to be a very interesting process. Stay tuned to find out what happens…
I spotted this skateboarder talking to the river rafters about the similarities in trying to perform tricks in their respective sports, and if they hit any good waves that day?
