I've been digging around in the attic that is my hard drive and uprooted some little beauties.
First off, a couple of Mikey Joyce.
Since the opening of Empire Skatepark in Colchester (formerly RampRage), I've got to skate with Mikey a little. He's a legend, an all out machine. And he'll b/s smith pretty much anything! He came along for the ride on the recent Milk Skateboards CPH trip.
Just remember to bring beers for the locals!

This next one is of young skater Jake Royal. He's a Bury St. Edmunds local and a little ripper!
Taken at a now shutdown DIY project in an empty unit in Bury.

These three were taken on a doomed mission to Lowestoft early this year.
We arrived at the concrete park to find soaked transitions, so we went searching for spots around the town.
The temperature was near zero and the sea fog closed in around us before long. We ended up at the sea wall and this bank.

This guy is always a pleasure to skate and shoot with.
Long-time Bury local Harley Miller skating his local park in the sun.
This park is soon to be demolished and replaced with a concrete construction. Local skaters & riders, coordinated by local skater/rider owned shop Hardcore Hobbies worked in partnership with West Suffolk Council to secure funds and design the park which is scheduled for completion in October 2013.

I love the shadows in this one. Night shoots are my favourite skate shoots.
This was taken on a rail under the Westway flyover between sessions at the nearby Bay Sixty6 skatepark in London.
Charlie destroys rails and stairs and this one was no exception.

This spot is known as The Blue Bowl. It is blue, but it's not a bowl.
It is however located on the edge of a small play park in one of the less impressive residential estates in Cambridge, and always covered in broken glass.
This is about as getto as my local skate scene gets.
