Stealing other people's events

The last time I was in London, Great Britain had won a few gold medals at the Olympics, there was a destroyer parked up in the river Thames and some event was taking place at the Southbank. Southbank is one of the ever changing places in London, being a place for legal graffiti the walls are always developing with new art work going up and old work being amended. Every time I go there, there is always something new to see.

This time I stumbled upon an event that was talking place in the Southbank skate park. As this was during the time that I was struggling with my photography, I was nervous about taking photos, worried about standing out from the crowd. The skatepark was full of youngsters, BMX's and yellow cones. After some googling, I have discovered the event that I turned up at. It was the 'DUB BMX street series', so that would explain the professional photographers, lights and the stickers from sponsors being thrown into the crowd. Having had a look at the photographs that I found on goggle from where the 'professionals' had set up their gear, I am not sure what to think.

Anyway, here are my photos from Southbank and Leeke road and one of someone else making use of the graffiti to strike a pose.
