This was from last year...
This too. Bikini girls on skateboards are the best.
2009 during the US open.
The fucking drum circle. I can't even begin to understand what the appeal is of this, nor can I abide the people it attracts.
Like this guy.
Really? You are coming downtown to a drum circle to do your ninja moves?
Indoctrinating your kids from a young age in hippie-ness is a surefire way to make thier life shitty. "Hey mom, I'm gonna drop out of high-school to work full-time on my fire twirling and hackey-sack skills because I'm sure they will bring me a rewarding life."
Frisbee Guy is totally the guy who would be at the drum circle. "Man I wish frisbee twirling would become an Olympic Sport. I would RULE!"
Zooming in on todays fashions.
Still this place remains magical.
Even if our weather is much colder than usual for this time.
Swimming in Spandex? How Eastern European of you.
I'll throw some sand in your general direction. Those postcards you see of "California" with bikini girls frolicking in the sand and surf? That really does happen every day here.
The water is pretty cold.
Ran into some young skaters who still remember me...
The girl only liked the photo above, but I think this one is much cuter.
