Riverwalk - PS Skatepark Wild Child


The entire half hour we sat and watched, this Wild Child Teen was on the move,, back and forth, up and down, notice he jumped his bike up on the table like thing. He did many tricks, but always to far away  from my lens

enlarge this photo and you can see he jumped the bike up on the bench, some of you thought the benches out in the park were for sitting, they are for bikes and skateboards, the benches for spectators are along the outside edges, walking out on the track would be hazardous to our health.  He did a lot of wheelies and jumps off the ends of the ramp, but I was to far away and the sun was the wrong direction.





TODAY WE HONOR ALL LIVING VETERANS, THANK YOU..............

That's pretty cool! Amazing what they can do now days..my son is 20 and he's still doing the tricks with the skateboard. Have a lovely day, heading out in the sunny afternoon here.

How nice to have a skate park. Must be safer for performers and watchers. Do you ever take your bike?

Best,
Bonnie

"MadSnapper" has been included in the A Sunday Drive for this week. I hope that this helps to point even more new visitors in your direction.

Sandra, we could do that!.....about 45 years ago....and even then ....we may not have lived to see 30! Looks like fun but they say it takes tons of practice. Have a good day.

Inger said...

Yes, thanking all veterans today.

Those kids are so amazing and I'm glad you had a fun time watching this particular speedy guy.

Terrific action shots! Glad he's wearing a helmet!

Madi and Mom said...

That wild child is fearless and his mom and dad must have very good insurance. LOL All that concrete makes for a very unfriendly landing.
Hugs Madi and Mom

Rose said...

That would be a fun place to go and sit and watch!

Ann said...

He must have been very entertaining to watch. You should have asked him to move closer so your lens could capture him :)

Debra Dickinson said...

Such concentration on his young face. Pretty impressive. I love the Veterans Day pic. Very nice.

Must have been fascinating to watch.

Nice for the kids to have a skate park. Glad he is wearing a helmet!

George said...

It looks as if Riverwalk has a little something for every one. Tell the daredevil that next time he needs to perform within better camera range.

Chatty Crone said...

I like the three shots in a row like that and wish I had that on my camera.

And yes it is great to remember our Veterans.

I like the three shots too! I can't believe that I didn't have a camera like that when my son was playing baseball.
Hubby says thank you.:)
Hugs!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

He looks so intense, really lost in concentration. It looks like he was having a great time however.

Betty Manousos said...

gorgeous motion photos at the skate park.
and a wonderful and interesting post as usual.

Yes we honour them all.
And wild child is channelling his energy wisely!

Dee said...

At least the park is set up for them unlike the kids that jump off the stairs etc. Good to see he is wearing a helmet.
