Skate boarding


I decided to go look for a mural in Lawson so I could join Sami's Monday mural meme.  This is a very long mural along the wall of the railway workshops at Lawson.  There are skaters spinning and jumping along its whole length.  I love to see them as my days of that kind of agility are long gone.

  1. Oh, yes! I was around 14, I think, when I had a skateboard and I was never that skilled! "Cool" mural.

    1. I never had one. I am sure they existed but had not reached "out bush" where I lived as a child.

  2. I like it but a bit more vivid colors let it more speak out.

    1. This is a very old mural and the colours have faded over time.

  3. Yesterday I was crossing the Goodwill bridge in Brisbane and a skateboarder went passed on the incline. I suddenly realised he wasn't using his feet. Very quiet so must have been electric.

    1. Yes it is. Much better than a long blank wall.

  5. Great find Joan. I would be too scared to skate, I prefer my feet on the ground. Thanks for contributing.

    1. Glad to participate Sami. My arm is still recovering from a fall months later. I was just walking, I can't imagine what damage being on wheels would do to me.

    1. I agree. It is well done and sadly not in a very prominent place at all so not a lot of people would enjoy it.

  7. That's a very cool mural Joan Elizabeth, my problem is lack of sense of balance 😀

    1. My sense of balance seems to get worse with age.
