National Skateboarding Day – Bogotá

June the 21st marks National Skateboarding day. A day celebrated worldwide in which skaters from all backgrounds come together to share and enjoy their passion together. This year I am in Bogotá, and whilst on my way to the centre to work on my usual street photography project, I was distracted by  hundreds of people on skateboards dominating the road, and couldn’t miss the chance to follow them-it was clear something was happening. 1000+ skaters had congregated in a park called Plaza De Los Hippies, where a skating competition was taking place. Here are some pictures from my day there. All photos are taken on my Fuji-film X-T10 with 50mm Zuiko lens at f/1.8.
