Skate Park - Diamond Bar, CA

When you stop caring about what other people really think, you actually have fun doing things. I temporarily got over my fear of taking random pictures of random strangers. Normally, I would balk and run away at the thought of taking random photos of complete strangers because I didn't want anyone to get mad and try to beat me up so they could break my camera apart. Who knows how long I will be over this fear...

Summer is basically here and many kids are already out of school, ready for the summer. I have been wanting to take photos of people doing tricks on bikes, skateboards and rollerblades at a skate park for a very long, long time.

There was a skate park in Diamond Bar. I don't live in Diamond Bar, but I only live about four miles from the skate park. I don't visit Diamond Bar very often despite living in a neighboring city for so long...who knew that it had a skate park! I had plan to go to Chino Hills for their skate park since I already knew that there was one there, but well...that was another ten to fifteen miles for me to drive.
Anyway, I didn't have much of a choice to be out in the open and I was so obvious holding my bulky camera with a telephoto zoom lens. No one seemed to care and a lot of the guys skated/biked in front of me. Must be that I was a girl and I didn't appear creepy?
