I like seeing personal photos people take here, thanks Canuckster those are great.
I have a few... recently my daughter was hired to be a hostess/ticket taker at my friend's wife's egyptian dance show. It was in the Distillery District in Toronto, and was a beautiful clear evening.
She had to work for maybe 2.5 hours, so instead of staying for the show I made sure she was OK then fucked off on my longboard to explore with a huge spliff, which is maybe my favorite thing to do ever lol
I didn't know the neighborhood so had no idea if there were any good places to skate but boy was I wrong I totally scored and found some really cool shit.
Right off the bat, I'm looking around which way to go to hunt for good pavement, and I see these 3 kids skateboarding and they start crawling under a fence. On the other side was a huge un-occupied parking lot, massive, smooth, with perfect fresh new pavement. I took it as a sign and followed them under the fence. They laughed and we skated around for a while. I gave them a joint. No one harassed us at all.
Then I found this park that was so cool, it was up on a hill you could see the whole city. Here is a splash-pad for kids. Amazing place I never knew:
Then I wandered around some other streets and found this weird jungle-gym thing for kids to climb on:
But wait... what's that in the background? Is that a skatepark?? lolol
I can't believe I found this by total fluke. It was awesome. Not even crowded. I had my longboard so no tricks but the whole place was on an incline so you could rock down it like a snowboard, hitting all the smoother boxes and ramps. So badass. Nice graffiti too
Then right after I left I found this. I thought someone had laced my joint, lol was tripping so good
Great fuckin time. I had called What to join me for longboarding but he never replied. Hope he's OK
