Great EsSkate 2005

Friday, February 7, 2005
After a two year hiatus, bobarazzi - the photographer formally known as thirstydog, returns to the Great EsSkate. How I ever survived with so little fun in my Februarys I'll never know. I made the wise choice of staying through until Monday which meant the Super Bowl festivities were extra festive. Thanks for remembering me, putting up with all my camera shenanigans, i.e. being blinded by my flash on a night skate and special thanks to the organizers, volunteers, police, NSP and the weather gods.

Friday - Satuday - Sunday
