Skateboard Rebels....

  In Roanoke VA at high noon on a crowded sidewalk, I captured this pair clattering along; how old? high school? It's like they have ritual uniforms they wear: hats on backwards, undies hanging out, jeans torn just so...a subculture?
    Truth is, I enjoy watching skateboard sporting events on TV, tho my attention span is limited to just a few minutes. On a recent walk, I detoured slightly to have a look at our local "renegades in training" over at Blogburg's own specially crafted skatepark. Our Blonde Guy and his friends spent much of middle-school and early high' just after the park was built, cruising these very hills and valleys, in search of purpose...
...and possibly skateboard girls?.... It was a chill-ish day, so the kids were covered up more. Moments from Spring 2011.
