shortly after the first spot, it started to rain. so we went and got some wonderful Estrella and wandered the streets of Badalona, looking for spots. and food. we did find spots, but goddamn it, spanish people dont like to work on rainy days. after what felt like walking all the way to great britain on foot, we decided to just buy noodles at a supermarket and cook them at the hostel.
where we decided to order pizza.
have you tried ordering pizza without speaking Catalan? its fun. you yell some english words at your phone, some old guy yells something in catalan, and after 30 minutes of wondering if our order actually came through the pizza arrived. yay.

recently, the rural city of Graz had royal visitors. one royal visitor, to be precise. Jan Federer, from Vienna. yes, the famous city, filled with fiaker, schnitzel and buttloads of culture. we gave our best and showed him around, trying to refresh his memories of years he lost here. because he lives in Vienna now. a better life. a more urban life.
first spot was this great curb in a driveway. Sam was the first to 5050 it.

here´s a sequence, for a change. i fucked up 2 tries (he didnt land, luckily) because i was busy switching between shooting this sequence and another trick, where i used flashes. that also explains the amazingly creative angle.
i recently had the joy to have my first food shooting at Tilia’s Little Uncooked Restaurant.
it was fun. and delicious. a few outtakes here.

just like simon. happy birthday, dude!
skateboarding can be stressful sometimes. there is a lot of “hit and run” involved, and sometimes the “run”-part comes before the actual “hit”-part is involved. (forget about the “and” part in this scenario…) but at least i can squeeze some kind of story out of it.
same thing happend last time we went to skate this rail. i was trying to try new flash stuff, foolishly thinking “yeah, i have time to experiment with moving the flashes, no need to hurry.”
here i try to get my angle worked out, timmy respectfully didn´t jump onto the rail this time. i wasn´t even close to ready.
in another installment of “hey let´s have a closer look at something in the picture”, how goddamn cool does Wally look like? Continue reading “all rail timmy.”
