KOBE, JAPAN IMAGES: PRETEND TO BE

“They constantly try to escape
From the darkness outside and within
By dreaming of systems so perfect that no one will need to be good.
But the man that is shall shadow
The man that pretends to be.”
T.S. Eliot, The Rock

KOBE, JAPAN IMAGES: G SKATES PARK 1

While documenting artist Grind Pencil’s mural in progress at G Skates Park on Rokko Island, we took a break so that he could  ride some ramps. Skateboarding is his passion and he chose his artist name Grind Pencil because he considers himself a “Skater Painter” . Here are some images of his ‘time-out’ today:
