Just a Saturday Skate

Testing out the new camera, I just had to take it out for a skate!  Somehow I have a feeling there is going to be more of these posts now that I have a new toy that is waterproof (sweat, yo!) and fits so very nicely into my pocket… Anyway, today was a ~20-mile skate all over the city, within the limits [of the City of Philadelphia]. Very nice and a great workout!

Here’s my first-ever shot with the new cam!

Sun is a bit too bright for a tiny camera to figure out what the fuck is happening…

I think I need to replace my wheels pretty soon :-)

Whatever these people are up to, I am not wishing to be part of a club that wants to lay down on cold, dirty, spit-covered sidewalk…

I rarely do selfies, but this camera is just asking for it :-)

Philly Horticultural Society is pretty awesome, if you have not been.

Fishing in a puddle… Feels a bit like cheating, somehow, no?

Just another insane asylum we find on a skate. You should definitely come out with us and play!

You’ll get to see the yellow brick building… on a standard-color road.

Hidden path will be opening up soon, perhaps as soon as the next season.  We’ve pre-skated it for you.

Camera does pretty shitty in low-light.  I need to remember to, basically, only use it in place of my phone.

Awesome skate!  Good times!  Cheers all-around :-)
