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.

pissed off

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.

the choreography!

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