Paine's Park Skateboarders

I boarded an Amtrak for the first time this weekend in route to Philadelphia as I was commissioned to document the Rock 'n' Roll 1/2 Marathon in the city the following morning from 7am-noon. In view that the assignment initiated so early, I arrived the day before and as exhausted as I was from the entire commute into the city of Brotherly Love, I absolutely could not imagine having gone directly to the hotel and not taken advantange of the beautiful sunset which was in full swing.

I walked a bit and enventually stumbled across Paine's Park which accommodates a newly designed skateboarding space. I approached a small crew that seemed to be videotaping their stunts and in between conversation they ended up being more than OK with me capturing a few photographs of them in their most comfortable element.
