Kickflips

Here are some photos that were taken shortly after I obtained my camera.

I was with a friend and we were visiting Melbourne.
When we saw these skaters, we were somewhere around St. Kilda.

I decided to take pictures of them.

Today my words are as wooden as my dining table.

This week sees The Daily Post issuing the theme of “Weight(less)” for its photo challenge.

I was originally going to use a picture of a plane, but changed my mind when I rediscovered these shots.

They may have been more appropriate if the theme was “motion”, but still, I think they work.

The skaters look like they’re hovering and the way their bodies are angled looks fantastically bizarre.

It seems almost as though the skateboards and the skaters are dancing with each other.

I should quickly note that I’m not sure if they were practising kickflips, but it looks like they were.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy.

    Funny how it seems that the skater is stepping on the horizon on the last one!
