Roller Derby! Used to watch that years ago, fun sort, exciting, not to mention bruising.

Wouldn't wanna tangle with those girls- they look fierce! :) Great B&W shot. Keeps the focus on the subject, rather than the color.

I love pictures that make me want to go outside. I think this is the first time I've seen one that makes me want to put on roller skates!

Roller derby seems to be making quite a comeback lately, I see it popping up all over the place.

My photography is available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!

@Carol - something tells me watching is all I would do too:)

@ Titanium - exactly what I thought about them, guess they got it spot on in the film

@Snowcatcher - I've tried normal rollarskating a few time, funny, can't imagine going at speed and competing

@ Robin - - apparently it's addictive

i've been asked to join many a roller derby team (probably because i'm 6ft2inches. haha. and it SOUNDs like a lot of fun... but i'm terrified of rollersk8s. rollerblades? no way! i would fall right on my butt!
