If you really know me – I mean if you really really really know me, you might know that one of my secret dreams is too shoot and edit skateboarding and BMX videos.
Big air and a spin.
Ever since I was young, like, say, preschool, I have been obsessed with skateboarding, BMX, surfing, snowboarding, and skiing. Extreme sports you can call them in a bundle. Doesn’t matter, really.
I just love the tricks, the culture, the idea of breaking the barrier and doing something that most people can’t even learn to do.

Anyways, I took my brother (BMXer, mountain biker, DJ) to the Greenfield Area Skate Park (where I would spend some summer days skateboarding) to finally try my hand at photographing some riders.
Here’s a slideshow of what I got. First shot, so I am always looking for pointers! Always room for improvement.

Pumphouse and Italian Garden
My flat-mate and I strolled through some portions of Hyde Park today. I was a romantic site with the sun setting as we walked south west. We started at the Marble Arch corner, made our way to the Italian fountains. Despite being winter, through out the park were winter gardens and giant trees that rival those of Central Park. We walked beside the boomerang-shaped pond observing the waterfowl until we found the Peter Pan Statue. We saw the Queen’s temple, which looked quite lonely in the middle of the lawn. On our walk towards the Serpentine Gallery we smiled at all the cute dogs running beside their owners. The gallery displayed many 21st century artifacts including wind turbines, economy airline seats, armor, and information about some displays on an Amazon Kindle. from the gallery, we walked further south west to the Albert Memorial, which was one of the most unbelievable memorials I have ever seen. It was abundant with gold, marble statues, and it towered high above topped off with a cross. We made our way north as the sun was setting.
Of course there is even much more to see in Hyde Park and we will certainly be back through out our stay.
