Back in the Day - Lanthorn

This is the first photo i found of the stuff from the Lanthorn. I've had a quick look through my negs but i seem to be missing some slides, i think they're in a box in my brothers attic, i'll need hunt them out.
I remember skating down to the park from my house with Skeetz and Girdy a year or so previous to this, Skeetz spied the rail and caveman boardslide it pretty easily. Girdy was filming a lot at the time and skeetz decided that he could probably boardslide it. I had never actually seen anyone skate a rail before in 'real life', so i was pretty stoked.
After taking up photography i used to skate with Skeetz on the reg, i took him back to the rail and he did it again.
This is the photo.



More crazy Lanthorn action to follow as soon as find those slides.

Sunday Sequence - Bobby Baillie

This is the bigger rail at the Lanthorn. Bobby got this crook pretty easy, i shot a still too that i still really like. We went back a few months later to get something else but they had been removed. I couldn't believe it, they'd been there for 20 years ans when i want to shoot a photo the take them away. I blame the janitor, he was always a grumpy bastard.

More Lanthorn action coming soon.
