I always wished to be a good skateboarder as a kid, but I failed miserably. FDR Park is a famous skateboarding park made of concrete. It sits nicely on the south end of FDR park underneath the I95 overpass. I always heard stories that the crowd around here was rough and if you bite it at skateboarding, you’d better not skate here. I don’t know how true that is, but on a Tuesday afternoon with cloudy skies, it was all mine.
I was attracted to the smooth curves and colorful graffiti. The structured beams that are I95 above help add hard, straight lines to the smooth curved concrete below. I was lucky to have the reflection and shine from the water in the foreground. Even though I didn’t skate, I feel as if shooting some brackets here was good enough!
