Around the Block


There is an imperative that I sometimes feel to publish the unrepeatable shot rather than the one I can return to (although that opens up lighting and mood questions!).

Anyway, here are a couple of capoeira dancer/fighter/acrobats in Ipanema who entertained the crowds in a literally traffic stopping show with a six foot vault included!   I managed to get into position for this shot and contributed nicely to their pot!   

Shutter release speeds hopelessly slow to show the actual vaulting.
