I snapped this photo in downtown Arlington Heights, IL, around this time 11 years ago. We were stopping off to buy a gift card for one of Katie’s family members when I saw a broken skateboard ditched on a sidewalk outside a store.
In addition to the fact I found a deck just sitting there, I really dug on the clean lines of the sidewalk and storefront wall leading off into the distance.
Otherwise, I found it odd because, at the very least, you’d think the trucks would be salvageable for later use. And if you did some cool art to the deck, wouldn’t you still want to keep it for show or the memories?
I guess I’m just a sentimental sap.
