Los Angeles Roller Skating Scene
So I just returned from a week long end-of-year rejuvenation trip to Los Angeles. So so needed. New York you got me for like two more years and then ... I need better weather for longer.
While I was in town I shot a little bit of my skate family at World on Wheels and the Venice Beach Skate Area. Wasn't really in photographer mode, but just wanted to catch a few flicks.

Probably missing stuff, but this is a good start.
