Feb. 21 - Campus longboarders

I went Friday night with a Chrony writer, Kassidy, to take night photos of longboarders on campus. With no flash, this sounded like a job for the 5D Mark II.

These guys use boards on wheels to battle the pavement and laugh in the face of gravity.

Scars from previous rides. When fighting the pavement, sometimes the pavement wins.

One of the most popular routes starts on the upper levels of a parking garage near the medical center.

Boarders pick up speed for the route by riding down from the upper level.

The route crosses the Legacy Bridge, which can be difficult due to the fact that it's narrow.

Riders travel through the tunnel at South Campus Drive and University Avenue to end the route at the Stadium parking lot.
