Bad Vibes at Meanwhile Park by ash Bad Vibes at Meanwhile Park by ash
This last Saturday I foolishly retraced my footsteps from the previous weekend, aiming to have another go at several shots which previously didn't work out as I had hoped. For my sins the light was terrible, and the pile of rubble in front of graffiti-covered wall I had caught three buses to reach had been moved by some inconsiderate builders! Then at the skatepark I watched an all out confrontation between a bunch of 20-something skaters and a young brat-faced Essex kid with attitude on a bike, forgetting to take any shots until it was really all over. So all in all, not a great day's photography :) (Smile) In an attempt to console myself I'm submitting this picture of a different kid, which is one of the only shots which even kinda worked. His nervous glance in the gloomy grey light sums up the whole day.

For me it's all in the lad's expression - like he's surprised amd wondering whether to leave.

I had a feeling that would confuse people -- "20-something" refers to their ages not their number :) (Smile) there were only about 3 of them

At least you stayed, if I saw 20 of them kicking off, I would have left quickly LOL

But seriously, i've had a run in or 2 with several Essex girlies, and IT IS true what they say...

Ack, the shot, sorry to hear that you didnt get to photog that fabulous pile of rubble, but this one turned out nice. Is that the same bike from last week?
