Here are some of the color slides that I found on the last trip to storage. It has been fun to look through these sheets and see some of my old friends and the old haunts. Makes me wish I had shot more color. But hind sight is 20/20.
Dave Clark. Arbutus Ditch. Fun place to skate. Dave had his own thing happening.
The artist formerly known as Iward. He excelled at spots that were unskateble.
William Howard lived close to Riverside Park. He used to freak people out by going 1000 mph and doing huge airs out of the bowl onto the sidewalk.
The crew that localized the Sperm Bowl was called Team Clit. They pretty much hung out in the small corner of the snake run. Here's me doing a boneless over the tight little hip into the bowl.
Iward saw this photo and asked me to do this. He took the photo.
Somewhere in all of my stored possessions are slides from this session. Colony Aprtments in Towson, with ring leader Paul Wisniewski over the light.
I experimented with a pole cam at Chesapeake. Some results were pretty cool. I hope the good ones surface at some point. Paul Wisniewski.
Paul Wisniewski's backside air again. The helmets inthe foreground are distracting, but the 80's colors are nice.
A young buck, Bucky Lasek at Fisherman's. The coping is in the lower right, but buried in the slide mount.
Bobby Bassett? ollie to tail at Lutherville. A short lived park.
Jeff Stamper goofing off at Lutherville's mini. The park wasn't that good, but it served the Baltimore crew well. I think Barranco shot these photos.
Paul Wisniewski. Easy target. I skated a lot with Paul in those days. Him and Dave Barranco, Tim Wise, Dave Herman, Jim Veiga, William Howard and my little brother. Pretty sure this shot is from the first summer that the first vert ramp went up. Blender and Losi hung all summer. Fun times.
Indy air by Paul Wisniewski at Ocean City
Paul Wisniewski in O.C. Md. again. Fred Smith and Paul dominated the air, the andrechts and the dreads.
