I was invited by Big Blue Hobbies owner Troy Pinkston to come out and take a few pictures at the Skateboard event he was hosting at Woodland Park in Lexington on Halloween night. Troy is famous for getting me sucked into the R/C helicopter world and responsible for building my great quad. In addition to every hobby item you can imagine, he is now also specializing in skateboards and has brought back lots of fond memories of this childhood pastime of mine. If you have any hobby or skateboarding needs, Troy is a great guy and can get you fixed up in no time!!!
Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate on Halloween to allow the event to take place so the event was moved to Saturday. The event went off very well with a huge crowd and lots of great skaters. I really enjoyed the chance to photograph these high flying athletes and had the opportunity to meet a lot of great new people. I can’t wait to go out to Woodland Park again and shoot some more skateboarding.
On the Saturday before Halloween each year, the Salato Wildlife Education Center in Frankfort, KY hosts a Halloween event where youngsters “trick or treat” at the center. It is a great event and the kids are amazing. There is some amazing creativity on display in the costumes. These are a few of the pictures from the day.
