I can't change the world... but I can skate it!

It has been "the week of dental work". My head aches and I feel like I am chewing aluminum foil. Skateboarding might be the last thing on the list of things to do for someone in my condition, however, Skateboarding is a huge part of my well being. I want (need?) to skate daily.

I hauled my new camera out to the mini tonight and set up a few tripod shots. I am borrowing some inspiration from MC. Many skaters are artists. Skateboarding is in many ways a physical art-form.
The surface of the ramp is in bad shape. I was able to repair it enough to skate it but it skates slow. I am not complaining I am just glad to be skating.

I admire your commitment - even in the face of adversity... or is that, "with adversity in the face."

Very cool! The selective focus is very nice. Good debriefing too.
