as an old skater, i think that you have seen something else from this sport. yes something spiritual… beautiful

i don't know whether you cropped the first shot or simply caught the image like that. no matter, it's an arresting composition. and you could not have paid for a more beautiful sky.

I skated for like 12 years until i cracked my leg bone all up, and had to retire...... I love you for this post....this is one subject that i wont shoot ever, cause of the addiction to it i once had, it would be a losing battle for me to put down my camera and pick a board instead. skateboards are what got me out of cameras as a teen....
Thanks for posting!!!!

I love these shots, Julia, but particularly the essence and aura you have captured in the first shot... I can see why you've named the post spiritual... if these images were cropped, they would all look as if they were deep in prayer and we would be none the wiser to what they were actually doing...

great job playing with shadows, the images, especially the ones withoput shadows, appear like sillouettes and are reminiscent of shadows. nice perspective.
