Default Weee! Fun on 4 wheels.

These 2 youngsters were getting a ride on a 5-6' skateboard from a vendor at the pier here in Huntington Beach. Clearly, they were having a great time.

The thing that makes that a really wonderful photo for me is the contrast between the kids being absorbed in the thrill of the ride and the young man being focused on you taking the photo...

Looks like shear joy on the faces of the little ones. Nice capture!

years ago we got a new TV and my 12 year old daughter and her girlfriend took the cardboard box, attached it to a skateboard, put themselves in it and had me push them off our dock into the lake. They were fully dressed in masks and snorkels which made it quite a humorous affair for all the neighbors.

This picture reminds me of those fun, crazy times with my daughter. Nice work.

I think this is the best of your recent "people" photos in terms of post processing. Great shot!

There is a lot going on here, and all of it positive and happy. I love people photography, and this is special. I know you do a lot of landscapes and buildings, but this is a nice diversion!
