The Skater

Recently I was driving in an area I wasn’t familiar with and I came upon a set of skateboarding pools under a freeway in the middle of nowhere. My Nephews are both skaters for Vans but I have always left their photo taking to their Mother. I stopped to watch these guys who were more than friendly and ended up spending hours shooting and admiring each one’s style. I’m going to work on some new “photo gritty” techniques perfect for skateboarding so I may decide to post a new skater each day (depending on how it goes). My skateboard, as I recall, was red with silver metal wheels. It’s probably worth a small fortune now…

This first one was left untouched and uncropped. I loved the painterly quality to it.
