About four months back I spent two weeks in So Cal visiting family. I had heard that there was a new skate park in Venice from a good friend of mine that lives there. Anyway, I had been wanting to take my nephews Daniel and Brandon to the skate park, not only to skate but also to snap some pics.
I had been to Venice before, but I had never really hung out on the boardwalk, I didn't realize how busy it actually was until we got there. There was no way we were gonna be able to get any runs in at the park, way too busy. We still had a fun experience though, there are a lot of interesting people out there to take pictures of. I found myself taking more pics of the roller skaters that were jammin' out on the flat concrete next to the skate park. These guys loved having their pictures taken. Plus I notice that people take me a little more seriously when I show up with my Hasselblad, they want to be in front of that camera. I had a couple of skaters approach me as we were on our way out and ask me about it.
Also, I am trying out a new layout for posting pictures on this blog. Typically I place one main photo on my post and link it to a flash photo gallery. This time around I decided to put all pics directly on the post. If you have a minute to compare this layout with previous posts, let me know your thoughts in the comment box below.
