This is a wonderful streetview and I love the shadows here. Yes, pub and skateboarding does not go well together.
Bill Phillips: I'll stick to the pub then Astrid smile
Nice catch - the light is great!
Bill Phillips: It was rather nice light E
This image exudes "warmth," Bill.
Bill Phillips: Late afternoon on a rare nice day!

Two pubs so close together! And what is that place - Star Yard - between 'em? Maybe it's summatt to do with dogs, the name suggests it might be a place to transform them into Hollywood-style glitterati

Or it's a pet shop..
Bill Phillips: I think it does fancy interior design...and I don't mean upmarket dog kennels
A normal form of transport here, Bill.
Bill Phillips: One I never had a clue how to do

I still look down my nose at this activity.
Bill Phillips: Is that partly because, like me, you can't do it?
Uncharacteristically walking...
Bill Phillips: Perhaps he had mechanical problems Larry

Great streetview. The man could be the star of the garter.
Bill Phillips: I suppose it is possible Louis grin
Do people still skateboard these days, I never see many, if any, about in Loughborough.
Bill Phillips: I believe it is now a serious activity Brian
I was going to mention great light but everyone else has done it for me.
Bill Phillips: Not like you to be beaten to the punch comrade
I like the grazing light that you highlighted in this image
Bill Phillips: Thank you Claudio, it was nice light

I passed a skateboard park earlier this week and everyone was on scooters rather than skateboards. All quite different to when I had a scooter.
Bill Phillips: The world moves on. It has no idea where it is going but it moves on

Lovely lighting.
Bill Phillips: It was rather good ...actual sun!!
love the variety of shadows throughout.

What might be this young man's story?
Bill Phillips: I don't know but I imagine he is a serious skateboarder. Perhaps on his way to or from practice with his friends. Maybe he dreams of fame and fortune in skateboarding
