Saturday drive with Jon Lawson through some charming East Tennessee back roads.We headed east on this cold morning. Equipped with one digital camera(me) and at least four film cameras(Jon). More trips like this in the near future will happen. Without a doubt.

 

A look at our route. 

 


Much appreciation goes to Jon Lawson. Thank you for the drive and companionship. Please visit Jon Lawson's website for his views-----> jw lawson FINE ART

Truism

In my 25 years as a skateboarder, I have developed a lifelong and genuine respect for what skateboarding is and what skateboarding has continued to teach me. John Bohnenstiel is certainly a true skateboarder that adheres to this philosophy. At the crisp age of 41, Johnny has no intention of quieting his passion and has a concrete understanding as to what makes skateboarding an innovative and organic art form. The more riders we have that foster this appreciation towards skateboarding, the brighter it is for the future of skateboarding.

Wallows - Knoxville edition

Located a few clicks west of downtown, the Wallows is an old school Knoxville skate spot. Though it was named after the world famous cement ditch in Hawaii, Knoxville's Wallows earned its own legendary status by offering a safe haven for local skateboarders long before construction began on the city skatepark. Ian Thomas and I decided to visit the ditch in hopes that the terrain would be without watery interferences.

30 Minute Walk

My camera and I decided to have a short stroll around downtown Knoxville without an agenda or destination. I gave myself a half-an-hour deadline for this project. Click through the gallery to see all photos.
