soo, its indoor season again. and as much as i hate this skatehall, its better than skating a shitty curb in a windy parking garage. on the other hand, its the perfect chance to play around with my flash and try stuff.
also, its the perfect time to take ridiculous pictures. first off, i am pretty sure that you could make some kind of meme out of Andis face in this one. i used my photoshop skills to enhance it. just.for.you!

you guys still reading this? content is all over the place recently. skateboarding, concert pics, and now feet? what is this guy up to?
well, i have a pretty darn good plan what i want to portrait here:
a) check how long it has been since i updated the blog
b) do i have any kind of pic i wanna put online? maybe something to write about?
c) since a) and b) most likely made me cry out in despair, choose some random picture and act all high and mighty about it.
so there you go, blogging 101.
decided to put 2 super secret pictures online. thrasher already has its cover for november, apparently.
here is what the pros do when a rail doesnt slide: use mother nature and all its wonderful creations. behold the banana waxxx!
aaand thats it. luki is outta here. powerslide to freedom.
so, there is this magical rail, high up in the hills of Graz. every single one that sees a video or a photo of that spot is like “dude, so small, looks perfect, i am gonna try XXX on that one!”
well, then you arrive there. downhill, rough as all hell, basically everything that can be wrong. look at those faces. fun fact: you have to “drop in” 4 m above the rail, if you push, you die because you get way too fast. when (if) you land a trick, you have mach 4 anyway. i somehow dont manage to transfer that onto the picture though.

Triest, Molo Audace.
Basically my first long exposure ever. Back in the day. I am quite experienced now, i shot like 4 more, which means i have mastered this technique, of course.
went to a wedding last weekend. it was weddingy. no complaints here.
also: have you ever thought about how cats can hear really really good? think about it.
those handsome fellas were innocent bystanders at the recent skatecontest in town.
they were obviously important and successful business men, which explains their fine garments and of course justifies them complaining about all the people there looking like bums and losers.
seriously, they called someone else bums and losers with no taste of clothing. that was a tough one to swallow. you go, you warriors of true values!
Julian is quite the person that you would want to shoot with. he doesnt care about “do that again, i am not happy with the angle” or “your face looks ugly, do it again” or “i forgot how to take photos, do it again”. he just does it again.
here he is testing the rail while i run around like an idiot trying to find an interesting angle.

Flip didnt enter the contest. he just skated around for fun. or, as one of the best actors ever would say “flip dont contest” (if you can add the original quote in the comments, you win eternal happiness, my right to go on with your life and a high five)
since Flip isnt skating Grünanger too much, he was surprised to find this ledge. IT IS JUST SO WELL HIDDEN. he was stoked on the secret spot he found. Continue reading “flips contest side.”
man kann es glauben oder nicht: ich kann auch auf deutsch schreiben. und das passiert jetzt. but dont get used to it.
Der Freedom / Blue Tomato Greenanger Contest fand dieses Wochenende statt. Ich war einer der gefühlt 12000 Fotografen, also hatte ich keinen Druck. Ich bin unglaublich talentiert mit Namen, also falls ich jemanden falsch benannt hab oder kein Name genannt wird, bitte schickt eure brennenden mit Kacke gefüllten Tüten an HC Strache, der is nämlich schuld.
Dieses Wiener Kid fuhr besser als er in diesem Alter sollte. Nachdem der nollie inward heelflip nicht wollte war die Frustration trotzdem zu groß. Als Fotograf natürlich gefundenes Fressen.
