Day 395 - Flight

During a break from work today, we went down to the park. It was a beautiful day and I thought the kids might be down there strutting their stuff.

I watched in awe as they skateboarded and road their bikes around the curves. They took a lot of chances, even if they weren't in complete control. They tried different things and they constantly pushed themselves. I watched a few wipe out, but they got right back on their feet and went again.

This guy actually pulled off a complete back flip with his bike.

I think there is probably a lesson to be learned from these guys.


  1. LOL, BZ Training, yep! They should be wearing helmets and protection. The pro's do so what's the big deal. Yeah, I'm a dad alright. Great capture and shot though.

  2. Wonderful action capture! They should have some type of protection, even though growing up we never had any...which could explain a few things...

  3. The whole time I watched them I was really glad that I had daughters who preferred to keep their feet closer to the ground.

  4. Great action shot... oh to be in warm sun and shirt sleeves!

    The lesson - Youth is wasted on the young? ;-)

  5. Love the lighting in this one! Great action, I love going to the skate park and watching the raw talent!

  6. Great action shot! Which park? I feel inspired.
