Finally I can show you one of the photos we held back from our trip to Paris earlier this year. The first photo I have had published.
It was used for a Milk Skateboards advert placed in Sidewalk Magazine in the July edition promoting the new Full Fat decks featuring artwork by Rob Mathieson. This is the Hobo.
As I said, this was taken while skating around Paris earlier this year with a few of the Milk crew. These steps were not a planned visit, we skated past them on the way to another spot and Harley just veered right between two shops. As with the rest of Paris, it stank of piss so we were careful to check before placing any bags or lights! I didn't notice the no roller-skates/bikes/mopeds sign on the wall but it kind of adds to the image and the locals that stopped and watched didn't seem to mind.
This was a tight line with a terrible landing surface before having to duck down under the second rail and squeeze between the trees and out into the street. I took two photos from different angles but the lower shot came out best.
So, here's the best quality version of the ad I could get hold of.
