Reach for the sky

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 2 October 2012 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

I am at Belco Skatepark - in the shadow of new high rise tower blocks.

Skaters had a big say in the complete redesign of the skatepark in the last couple of years. The only feature retained was the 10ft keyhole bowl - where I got this shot.

I love the strong diagonals, and the instant reminder of why I don't see too much of my son!
He's always out all day long on a skateboard too.
