Photography: Skate Parks
I never really understood the appeal of skate boarding, even though I dated a skater boy in my youth. Generally it looks painful and not very thrilling. I was in Venice Beach last month and came across the skate park there, and I have to say I was mesmerised. There is is a certain beauty in the the perseverance of these people that try again and again all the while smacking into hard concrete. Of course it's also nice that it is on the beach in great weather in an awesome location. Not sure it holds the same appeal in the cold in a random alley in Austria. But that is just my opinion.
