Maybe I am a bad blogger or bad at "marketing myself", as they say. I can't say that anyone has missed me though, so maybe it doesn't matter that I post a few photos several months later. Here is a fun night skating the Crater then going to Shr3dCrust and MonkeyKnifeFight at the Whiskey.
Punk rock, pool coping, tail smacks, and beer cracks - it must be a Ross Rogers birthday session. We miss you bud.
Thanks everyone for shredding, beers, pizzas, entertainment, and camaraderie.
So as "year in review" posts get scattered throughout the internet, I decided to hop on the bandwagon and do one myself. Here goes.
The year started with a January drive out to Topsail Island. We didn't see anybody anywhere for the most part.
Winter in the deep south allows perfect skate weather in January. Trent, Alec, and I skated some treacherous terrain by the waterfront in tee shirts in the middle of winter.
A few days later, Wells Shaw did a beer-belly high crooked grind over some bum.
It got cold enough and foggy enough to take this photo of my brother.
February hit it off with a contest at Backdoor Skatepark. I made a video about it.
I also took photos of the after party.
February came and went. With the beginning of March, friends and family of Ross Rogers got together and raged out to remember a great person.
I made a trip to Boone and it snowed. I stayed extra days and took lots of pictures.
February is cold but I still managed to shoot pretty girls in dresses outdoors.
We skated this thing a whole lot.
We did a lot of skating in March. Trent Reed did an artsy nose manual downtown.
We rediscovered a lot of spots that hadn't been touched in a while and got some photos for fun. Will's smith grind even got published in Thrasher's Photograffiti section.
Well, those were the highlights from January to March. April - August coming tomorrow.
It seems I have been removed from my own blog for a few weeks now, but I've been shooting a lot. These photos are from a night of amazing shows in Downtown Wilmington. First up is Virgin Lung at the Soapbox. Then we hopped over to Hell's Kitchen for the Danger Ross memorial show. I'm not sure why I thought one photo would be better in color but that's how it is. Deal with it.
In a last minute decision, my brother and I hopped in the car to Asbury Park, NJ with Half Mast for a show and some skateboarding. I shot no skate photos, but the show was very fun.
