The side walk racer, no more?

I'm completely obsessed with sepia and lomo mood at the moment; so, bear with me :) These boys (some girls) have this little space for their "extreme" sports. Sure its a bit dingy..at least it is safer than the streets. Good news is, there are plans to build them a proper facility.

The Sidewalk Racer
-- By Lillian Morrison

Skimming
an asphalt sea
I swerve, I curve, Isway; I speed to
whirring sound an inch above the ground;
I'm the sailor and the sail,
I'm the driver arid the wheel
I'm the one and only
single engine
human auto
mobile.

Nice shot. Sepia is really appropriated for this picture.

Lachezar said...

Yet one more of your beautiful photos! The gold tones really enrich the overall sepia range to quite a melancholic effect!

Kate said...

My camera has sepia capability, too, but I haven't learned it yet, but you inspire me!! The poem is most appropriate for the photo. Good choice!

Young people skateboarding in sepia - it almost looks like autumn or late afternoon and they're in a rush to get a few more minutes of fun into the day.

I Like the feeling and mood - just a bit more and you'll be black and white!! Catchy poem as well. NB thanks for pointing out that my photos are not updating - I'll check it out

Nice color and action shot. How nice that they will get a real facility. We had a skateboard park built in our city last year. Its used all the time and is so much safer than the street.

Bill said...

So would the proper facility be a hospital? :)

Kris said...

bill,
hahaha..why not if we can afford it :p

Is this done with a Lomo camera? I haven't seen that much Lomo work...very nice.

Kris said...

kuanyin,
nope, although i would love to own in the future. In the meantime, i'm using http://www.dumpr.net/ to create the lomo mood.
Thanks !
