Looking Down


Texture Tuesday's theme is "Looking Down".  I took this photo at one of our local skateboard parks.  I 

used Kim's "cool grunge" texture and also added some grunge brush strokes.  The image was perfect 

for adding text which I wasted no time doing.  My son used to be an avid skateboarder, and this young

boy reminds me of that time in my  life.  I wonder sometimes how we live to become adults

but he had no fear.  click on the button below to go to Kim's linky party and see lots of other

 interpretations of this theme.

Love the texture with this subject! My son was into rollerblading and built his own ramps. Kids came from blocks away. Thanks for jogging fun memories!

Your photo is a perfect choice for the topic, and I love the use of that texture - I haven't used it yet.

My son lives in Orange County and while there visiting I captured some shots similar to yours and it is amazing that these kids have absolutely no fear...ahh to be so fortunate to live without fear. Great shot and texture!!

Hi Marilyn! I have missed doing the Texture Tuesdays but sometimes when she has a certain theme, sometimes it just seems hard for me to get into them for some reason.

Your from Chattanooga? I've been there many times and road the ChooChoo as a child lol. I've been all over that beautiful State of Tennessee! All my grandparents, parents, are from a town outside of Knoxville. I just LOVE it here. I think of moving there sometimes, to those wonderful, beautiful mountains. I can almost smell the freshness now.

Love your TT ! Your son is very talented!
