Los Skaters de Barcelona...





Here's some thumbnail-sketches of skateboarders at a wide, flat, concrete park in Barcelona next to Sants Station. There were about 50 or so kids having a grand ol' time there right up until dark. I sat on a long bench and watched until I saw an interesting pose, then would quickly draw it. I felt like Jane Goodall studying chimpanzees...an outsider able to get a glimpse into the rituals of some mysterious group. Then a young man walking by asked me if I'd like to buy some chocolate. I politely declined(thinking it was peculiar), later learning that that's another name for hashish. Huh, well there you go.
