Leo the Lion

I haven't updated in awhile. I guess it's because i haven't been skating all that much. It has been getting colder and colder out, but I wanted to finally skate.

I was sitting at home and then Leo calls me to go skate and get some pictures. We went up to Munster, because there was nowhere else to go, and we got a picture. Leo did this sweet ride up backside smith stall type deal.

Props to Leo on the trick and oh yeah, "Muuuurdaaaa!"

Michigan City

I haven't updated in awhile, but I thought this day should be the day to change it.

The day started off at the park for a "Warm-Up" session to get ready for street skating. While we were getting warmed up, I caught Pedro doing a Half Cab over the bench. I told him to do it again, and I snapped a shot of him doing that. Props to Pedro on the smooth Half Cab.

As the day went on, we went street skating. We hit up this bank spot in Downtown Michigan City. As soon as we got there Justin was trying Wallrides. I was super stoked on it and got everything ready and as Pedro filmed I snapped a few photo's of it. Props to Justin on the Wallride.

Hopfully I'll get back on my photo scene.

Local Update

The Highland Highschool 5 Stair is a landmark for skating here, and just recently it was destroyed by workers for making a new one. Since it was taken down it makes as a gap now.

James wanted to get some stuff there and the only way to actually get a good skate in it is to skate it at night. Me and Mike went there as James tried doing the Heelflip down it. Mike caught it on tape as I shot it. Props to James on the hella gnarly Heelflip.

Not too far from the Highschool is Highland Christian School. It is also an older spot, but Kyle stepped it up with some new tricks. Me and Kyle always have talked about going there and getting different
shots and finally we went with our word and got some stuff in. Kyle set up for a Backside Nosegrind and did it just in time for before the sunset all the way. Props to Kyle on the smooth Backside Nosegrind.

Who knows, maybe some more local spots with be brought upon with some new tricks.

Death of a Fisheye [Part 2]

As for a last day with the fisheye lens, James and I went to Chicago. I wanted to get a few good pictures before I had to say goodbye to the lens. James ended up starting to skate the 8 stair there. Instead of throwing a size up Ollie, he did a Nollie. Then He started doing Nollie Heelflips down it. I decided to get a sequence instead of 1 still picture. James threw himself down the 8 stair good enough for the final day.

Death of a Fisheye

The fisheye I have been using lately on my shots is actually a friend of mines, Ryan Lowry to be exact.

He let me use it for a pretty long time and well now he needs all the money he can get for it and just sold it on E-Bay.

So until Monday I get to have my last final days using fisheye, until I purchase a new camera.

Sunday, I will be goin to Chicago with James Brickner, expect a final fisheye picture of him by then.

I give out thanks to Ryan Lowry for letting me use that fisheye lens.

Kyle Kuscera

Whenever I go out and skate with this kid, I always manage to get one picture of him.

Like always whenever a group of our friends go skating, we end up at Munster Skatepark. I didn't want to leave the park empty handed, so I had Kyle do stuff on the taller flatbar. Ended up getting other shots, but this one is my favorite one.

James and The Giant Smith

This picture is my latest picture and one of my favorites.
He told me he already did it before with no cameras, so we went back and Mike filmed while i got the photo.

Luckily, for the amount of people at the spot, no one was in the shot.
