Skater Dreams


Saturday I was walking by a skater park and wanted to test myself taking a few action shots, but the real reason was to dream for a few moments of what it would feel like to fly on a skateboard. This kid loved performing for me. He would tell me where to point my camera and what he was going to do to entertain me. I asked him why there were no girls skating. He said they come and crash once and never come again. He wanted me to take this picture touching his board. I also took one of him "doing air", but all I got were his feet. He flew so high.

Now secretly (I guess the secret will be out now) I was a quiet girl growing up, but also a daring one. If I had known of skateboards when I was a girl, I would have certainly been out there with the boys. For a few moments I dreamed of being that skater girl, flying "doing air".

Don't forget to leave comments for the linen give away. I will announce the winner tomorrow morning.
