Either that or some guy or gal trying to rid themselves of a gigantic diaper. Sorry.

Love the backdrop of the concrete building - a lovely dichotomy to the artistic flowing fabric and limbs of the performer!

When I see athletes doing fetes such as this, or the women on the balance beam at the Olympics, I wonder how many times they have fallen and injured themselves in practice.

Sharon said...

Those are some tricky maneuvers.

Kate said...

These maneuvers require so much practice and agility. Hats off to the performers!

It takes a visitor to town to get out to see things _ I missed the buskerfest - too busy!

Library Jewel said...

I love the setting but wonder if there are supports that we cannot see in this shot.

Keen photograph Brattcat... reminds me of Cirque du Soleil acrobatics!

It's amazing to watch the ribbon work, my niece does it, I don't know how they 'really' don't get tangled.

Great photo.

I have to go on a diet. Urgently. Awesome body management in the photo.

I think this type of acrobat is amazing.

Lowell said...

What a fantastic shot. A wannabe flying Wallenda, perhaps?

Welcome back Brattcat!

I wish I could remember the name of it, but there was a troop of what you might call vertical dancers that once performed here. They went up and down the side of an old building, several stories off the ground. It was spellbinding. I'm sure this was, too.

Perfect simile . . . the backgrounds in both performance images add so much to the action in the foreground.

JM said...

Love watching this. Great shot.

Thérèse said...

Except that the way out is easy to find for this acrobat... :-)

VP said...

I envy them...

Lowell said...

So nice to hear from you again! Wherever you are, whatever you're doing, I hope you're having a great time!

Irina Rekhviashvili said...

I am with Lowell. Good luck and thank you!

Cezar and Léia said...

Bonjour dear friend!
Life got a little bit hectic this time here and unfortunately it's difficult now to go to Belgium as Cezar is working in Germany.Anyway if you decide to visit Lux, please send me a message by mail, it would be a pleasure to get around and show you the city! :)
hugs and enjoy your trip!
