So this weekend a friend of mine asked me to join him on a photo shooting at a skatepark. Well, this is the story. Nothing more to say, here are the results, taken in the magic hour:

And we’d like to announce a rumble: upload your best shots around this theme – be it BMX riding, skateboarding, inline skating, … be it street or park – you are limited to 5 shots. The five best shots get 10 piggies, this rumble ends on Monday afternoon, Vienna time.

PS: To get in the mood – here’s a music video to the song “West Coast” by “Coconut Records”, showing Mark Gonzales skating around: ==www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTzEp4CeWT8==.

    On-Time Rumble: Show Us Your Perfect Timing

A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time.
