I recently had an ‘interesting conversation on twitter… It started like this:


A photo of a Dog on a Skateboard?! Yep, sounds familiar.

Since I knew I took a photo of a Dog on a Skateboard back in Kreuzberg in 2014 I took a deep dive into the photo archives – and there it was. Back then we were in Kreuzberg, walking around Engelbecken to watch the light installation Lichtgrenze, part of the the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. And right at Bethaniendamm, near Engelbecken there was this bad ass dog, basically skating up and down the street. Well – he wasn’t actually ‘skating’ like a pro – but he was indeed using the skateboard as I used to use it: about half of your legs on the board, the other half kicks the street for speed – then all legs go onto the board and you enjoy the view – and the looks – as you roll down the street…
