Emilio over at Photos by Emilio invited me to join in the 5 photos, 5 stories challenge. If you haven’t viewed Emilio’s awesome photos and seen his unique finishing touches, you really must pay him a visit. In addition to being quite the digital artist, he’s also one of the nicest bloggers I’ve met on here.
Continuing on my theme of WEIRDNESS AT THE LOUVRE….
As promised…..another unusual situation outside the Louvre.
Not nearly as perplexing as yesterday’s shot, but definitely one that filled me with awe….first that anyone COULD do this and secondly, that anyone WOULD do this in such a public venue. Maybe it’s just an age thing me being so entranced by this, but how great are these acrobats?
I mean really! Nary a wrinkle in that blanket on the ground which suggests to me that no struggle was undertaken to achieve this pose. Okay, they have 20 years on me…..but still! And maybe it’s the mother in me, but I’m also wondering why the smaller person is on the bottom supporting the larger person above? Even the statue behind them won’t look at the catastrophe that this could be.
And how effortlessly comfortable does that girl on the bottom look? Hands gently resting on her abdomen like she hasn’t got a care in the world and isn’t bothered one iota about the fact that she’s supporting someone larger directly above her using only her feet. And the girl on the top? I mean she’s got way more guts than me and quite obviously a MUCH more flexible body!
Not only COULDN’T I, but even if i COULD, I’m just not sure I WOULD, you know? And…..even if I COULD and WOULD, I WOULD NOT be doing this on the grounds in front of the Louvre!
Thanks for joining me today.
Tomorrow, yet more weirdness outside the Louvre!
