These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

- Soul Coughing: Idiot Kings

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

great action shot, although he's either totally fluffed it or is doing some kind of weird ground scraping tres flip.

(glad I read the "on campus" bit. otherwise, I'd have went off on trick-skate-bike-blade-etc.-ers that do things in the street. at least this was a low traffic area?)

mr. a, here is an easy way to sum it up :

Me: "___, look, if you're really intent on this, come back when it's not so busy, and wear something not-street-colored."
Friend: "pssh.. look, it's quiet now, no cars. no big deal"
M: "breaking your wrist is one thing, a wheel smashing your face is another!"
F:"yes mom!"
F: "it's completely clear. stop worrying."
*friend speeds up, jumps the railing, grinds railing, sees car coming, bails off toward sidewalk(thankgod), deck hits car, gets snapped in half under car following right behind*
M: "you fucker. "
F: "well then, I don't think I'll be doing that again."

basically... a. I like my friends to not die.
b. I like people in cars to not die.
oh, and very importantly!...
c. people smushed in the street are more ........ than any other kind of dead person I've seen.

fair dibs, and true, streets are a bad place to skate when trafficked - jeeez!!

btw, it's REALLY rare for a board to snap under a car, he was totally unlucky.

I could have made that simple by saying moving vehicle + pedestrian = bad. heh.

Joe says:

thats true, I've had several run over, and they've never snapped....they do spring up nicely though, and leave lovely dents...

That title, Skateboards on Campus, should be followed up with a subtitle: Students in Low Orbit.
