two small boys scooted around the area for quite some time. The little guys didn't get hurt, but caused some accidents as the big guys fell in the act of avoiding them. This boy was certainly very into what he was doing.

SKATERS, are you are looking for pictures I took of you before? last week's pictures are HERE, You can get to a linked index of all my skateboard pictures here.

------------

Skateboarding opens my eyes. I see flowing movement, balance, courage, spirit. I'll keep taking pictures at the skateboard park. I'm sure there is a lot more for me to see and to learn how to capture.

As amazing as it is when the moves work, when they don't, the way the skaters recover is even more amazing. they re-balance, they adjust, and when they do fall, they usually do it in a way that lets them get right back up and keep skating.

I'm posting a lot of images. Usually, I edit down to a much smaller number in my posts, but I want the skaters themselves to have the chance to see the images. I gave the link to a couple of people today, and I plan to do that more over the summer. It is a way to give something back (I hope) for the inspiration they give to me.

dadlak like the b/w...makes you focus on the action rather than colors of skateboard and clothes.

????? gorgeous as always Julia..so poetic and fluid and beautiful... capturing the moves and the light was so awesome too.. did they know at all you were taking them? They are brilliant shots .. to be so agile...*sigh*

????? You're very brave, Julia! I know for experience that these shots are really hard to take (i have a a 13 yeard old skater at home!)
I think you really caught them on action on #5,#8, #12, #17 and #18 and 21. Great shots!
My son never approved any of my photos so i usually make videos for him... =)

gderuiter This is such a great subject for you, Julia. I particularly love the release of tension moving from photo #1 to #2. It feels like he could fly away. What a beautiful body he has, too.

????? Nice, good b/w.
????? · 2008-05-27: 14:35
????? Whoa! #2 and 5 stand out to me in this set. The last shot is pretty hot too; such grace...

You have such a skill to capture the essence of a skater; both their artistic balance and their cool edginess. Nice work Julia.

Tiffany I liked the last one the best- somewhat like equestrians, one of the most interesting things or a sign of the skill of the sk8ter is his/her connection to the board. Not sure I saw too much of that in the other photos although they sure do strike unusual poses in the quest for balance.
