I LOVE these photographs.
Everything grabs me in these shots - from the skating, fashions, gorgeous location in the background, to the crowd shots of onlookers at the event.
Looks like the perfect way to spend a summers afternoon or weekend to me!
Theses photo also have a great side story to them...
Steve Lundeen (Nick's son in-law) has created a photo archive project on Flickr (here), and is undertaking an amazing task to post his late father in-laws images in their original sets - approx 20-50 images a day. Steve's hope and intent is to eventually digitilize every picture Nick DeWolf ever shot, and post the images on the web for the DeWolf family and public to enjoy.
You can find out more about Nick DeWolf here, and visit Steve's Flickr page featuring Nick's photographs here.
A big thank you to Maggie DeWolf and Steve Lundeen for allowing me to share these fabulous photos and story.
Just another reason why I love Flickr: each photo has a story, but so does the person behind the camera.
