Nostalgia Tuesday on Wednesday

When you think Moab Utah, Jeep Safari is probably the first thing that comes to mind. You might never have guessed that moab was a favorite skateboarding getaway for me in the late 80's. There was Mr. J's Skate Ramp, lots of quirky street spots, plenty of folk lure and SLICK ROCK, a mass of sandstone earth smooth enough (in places) to skate! There is something real cool about riding a surface that was not built by man!

Here is a pic of me, out on the rock. I loved those old Airwalk hi-tops! circa 1987



Here is a shot of my friend Jeremy P. Jeremy was THE local ripper and our close Moabite friend! circa 1987

The black and white makes it look soooo vintage; like you're ready to compete with Ansel Adams or somthin

It was only yesterday! We did a good job with make-up and wardrobe to capture the era... ;) lol! I don't know who took the shot of me... maybe Gary or Colby or Jim but I took the shot of Jeremy. Both photos were shot on my old Yashika SLR, I loaded the film can, developed the film and printed the shot myself... (photography class in high school). I obviously wasn't very clean technically, but I loved that class.
