Chasing Shadows

Venice local Nick B has snapped our Skate Park Pic of the Week.  “It’s been fun to shoot around the park after having grown up hanging around the pavilion and the breakwater,” said Nick.

Photography runs in the family; Nick said his dad is a street photographer and took a heap of shots around LA and Venice in the 70s and 80s. There is an exhibition of some of Nick’s dad’s photos tonight in Playa del Rey. Find out more here. “I’m going to start posting his archives of Venice soon on Instagram,” said Nick of his dad’s work. Check out more pics from Nick on his Instagram @pov_of_nickb.
