Although the weather of Las Vegas is stifling, teens look to hone their skateboarding skills at Desert Breeze skate park.
Despite the blistering heat, some local skaters look to “drop in” rather than “dive” into pools across the Las Vegas valley. Desert Breeze skate park provides this experience to those skaters looking for something fun and exciting in a city designed for adults.
Even though the most important aspect is the skate park itself, Desert Breeze hosts many other forms of entertainment such as soccer and football fields. This is the most popular skate park in West Las Vegas and quite possibly the entire city. It offers half-pipes to skate, rails to grind, and pools to drop into. Once the sun sets on the valley the park comes alive with anxious skaters all looking to beat the heat and have fun with friends. Teens have the ability to skate the night away under the bright lights the park offers, that is of course, until the curfew for minors is enforced.
Desert Breeze also has its share of skate competitions with the largest competition usually occurring on the last Saturday in March. This competition coincides with “Extreme Thing”, a local music festival that is held annually at the park. Although the music is the main attraction, the skate competition draws a large number of fans to watch their favorite local skaters compete.
My city of Como hosts a series of nice events this season. One of these is Creativity Day, where the upper schools show their project at the main square of the pedestrian area. This year, my students have assembled a Lomography Konstruktor at the main square of the city! Take a look after the jump!
Say goodbye to October and hello to November. The weather is getting colder but we have a bunch of workshops that will keep you warm! We have a lot in store for us, from a walk in the park with the Petzval to creating light painting masterpieces.
The cold weather is steadily creeping in at Lomography HQ in Vienna. It filled us with nostalgic joy to discover a whole new selection of wonderful end-of-Summer photos taken with the LC-A 120 throughout the Austrian countryside by our colleague Dream. If you also have the early winter blues, this fantastic gallery should help soothe the pain!
Warmer weather is approaching, and it calls for having a good time. Bassment New York City and Lomography team up in presenting Greg Beato (of L.I.E.S. and Apron Records) at the Cameo Gallery this coming Saturday. Join the fun and grab the chance to get some awesome giveaways!
Scott Brasher is a fashion street photographer based in New York City. His work has been featured on many media outlets while working with brands like Cover Girl, MTV, Reebok, and Target, among many others.

This article is dedicated to the French street photographer Raymond Depardon and his wonderful series depicting people communicating with mobile phones from all over the world.
