It was a while ago but I finally got around to sorting through the few photos I took. Another quality day out in the sun(!) in Scotland. Tunes, friends, skating, a few beers and general revelry with some prizes and stuff going on in the background…
OK, it seems I’ve been a little negligent. I appear to have forgotten to upload some photos from previous events. First and foremost amongst these is Laced from earlier this year. Only one of the biggest events on the year, so nothing important like.
So I’ll shut up now and post the photos…
Another trip over to Eindhoven occurred recently. It was two years since Team Icecream last hit Area 51 skatepark for Winterclash and it was time for a return. After a few false starts including 2 of our number getting on board the ferry with less than seconds to spare, and a number of technical issues regarding the compatibility of my flashes, things ended up going as amazingly as usual. The skating was yet again at a level that shocked everyone, particularly the closing of the gap between the kids, ams and girls and that of the pros.
On a side note; if you’re ever in the area and can possibly eat, you need to check out Rodeo for the best steaks pretty much anywhere. 500g fillet is the one.
Anyway, back to business. Over the two days I did manage to get a few shots. Nothing amazing, but enough to get a feel for the event. Unfortunately nothing from the party due to my overlooking the process of requesting permission from the club (Effenaar – great night BTW) in advance, but anyway, check these out:
Now, time to fix my flashes and get some sleep before Laced tomorrow (later today).
Well, it was a few dates around the North of England for the Roll Kings team on their “Winter Splinter” tour this November. With a different skatepark each consecutive night it was a battle but most came out alive. I even got photos and they have finally been sorted, processed and uploaded. They are all in one gallery but they are spread over three nights, at The Asylum, Bones III and The Arc. All parks that you need to visit if you haven’t already.
After looking through the photos I got from the Roll Kings Winter Splinter mini tour I picked out this shot of our little Scottish Razors rider, Rosie O’Donoghue on a Tru Soul at The Arc in Preston. It just happened to crop well for a wallpaper image so that’s exactly what I did. It’s cropped, sized and optimised for 1920×1080. Keep your eyes out for the full image along with all the other shots I grabbed which I’ll be working through and getting online soon…. ish.
So it took a while. Part of that was of course recovering from the weekend, but now I can face the light again I thought I’d better get the pictures done and out for all to see. As is standard for such an event there are more photos of the afterparty than there were from the skating itself, but who’s surprised?
