SKATEBOARDING AND STREET PHOTOGRAPHY. WHAT DO THEY HAVE IN COMMON? IS IT ART? SELF EXPRESSION? A SPORT? WELL, IF YOU’RE LOOKING AT EITHER AS A COMPETITIVE INTEREST, THEN STOP READING NOW.
To me, it’s all about being inspired by your surroundings and using tools such as a skateboard or a camera to convey your thought process. Street photography and skateboarding have one main thing in common, they both take place on the streets. This write up isn’t supposed to be about skateboarding at all, but it’s hard to separate skateboarding with the city of Los Angeles. Skateboarding has taught me to really appreciate the city I am in, the people that populate it, and the buildings that cover the area. Anyone who skateboards can understand that you never have a daily routine set out, and you have no real agenda. Majority of the time, you plan to meet somewhere specific, and then you just see where the day takes you.
