Hans Brinker's skate!

Mojo said...

Man, my ankles wouldn't last six seconds in those!

Think I'll stick to taking pictures -- or looking at yours anyway.

love the muted color and textures.

Interesting, it almost looks two dimensional against the textured background (or maybe it is?).

I am also thinking of what Mojo said about her ankles and those skates. The same thing is probably true for me, too.

I'm trying to imagine skating on one of those skate board style. It reminds me of stories I read when a young. Wooden shoes always held a mystique until I tried wearing shoes with wooden soles. I just gave a way a beautiful pair of sandals with wooden soles becasue I just couldn't bear to wear them. Yet if I had the opportunity I would have to try these :) Happy WW

Very cool. I have wooden shoes I bought in rural Holland a few years ago. I wear them often in the yard. I had no idea that there were wooden shoe skates.
