Written Statement

This place makes me happy. It is my favourite place to skate in the city and I love the graffiti there because it is so colourful. I did some graffiti at home but Mum wasn’t very happy about that. Skating makes me happy because when I skate I can do cool tricks but sometimes I get hurt.

I used my brother’s skateboard in the photos because I love the chequered grip tape. Sometimes he lets me use it, which also makes me happy. I used my sister’s Canon EOS 550D 35mm camera. I did some editing to change the contrast and also some cropping in one photo.
