Bumming after the soccer riot...

Image Description
YES, the chaos stopped ALL taxi's from picking up anyone, and we had to walk what semmed like trillions of miles back to our hotel after a hard day of skating and rioting. Look how unhappy!

Image Description
These are Soccer Hooligans. This one guy was laying down in front of moving cars, making them stop, where the crowd would then shake the hell out of them, and kick them, until they drove off almost killing someone...
We watched some crazy crap that night at this intersection. Drevin contributed.

Suffer the Joy of public chaos, it is never pretty.

Josh Looks For More

Image Description
...but don't we all. Josh lurking the Frankfurt airport. The days are long and the nights are hot here in Barcy. Josh got lost in the middle of a riot two nights ago. Looting and chaos were cause by the last minute victory of Barcelona's soccer team in the Euro Championship. He walked through miles of city on a bruised heel at four in the morning. Dodgy.

On The Road Again (Again)

Image Description
Spain awaits and Bradford gets to experience his second international outting in less than two weeks. I can't wait until he's jaded and bitter about the whole traveling thing. This youthful enthusiasm he exudes about these trips is throwing off my whole perspective about the down-trodden skate-photographer. Get with it John, this is only a stepping stone into fashion/photo-journalism/soft-core porn. Treat it as such.
