Thoughtful Thursday



Shot taken last night while enjoying some time at our small county fair with my daughter and her friends.  An interesting performance of balance, strength and happiness with the end result.  

"Man maintains his balance, poise, and sense of security only as he is moving forward."

    1. He stacked them as he went. His lovely assistant handed him each chair, via the long pole. I wouldn't get up there either!

  6. Interesting chair trick -- using the old triangulation method. Still -- its a long way to fall -- makes for a wonderful country fair show though -- barbara
