"why do you want to take our pictures"
"i'm gonna leave my board at the bottom so i can get air for ya....are ya ready"
"why are we backwards"
"i call it a johnny hoppin"
"seriously dude...you want us to skate right at your face while you're sitting there"
i love shooting people
especially in their own environment and
after the winter's dry spell
it was fantastic to be outside yesterday
i headed to the skateboard park
which is kind of a scary place
since i have a "wear my jeans low so you can see my boxers" teenager myself
who doesn't skate
they don't bother me
they are always so curious as to why i want their photos
always cooperative to do anything i ask
the skateboarding photos weren't enough for me
i had to have my
tried and true
that i started last year
they were wonderful with my crazy wishes and laughing through each photo
then giving the ones who wouldn't jump
a hard time
thank you warm weather
for letting me breathe again
