TGIF Photo Friday

Here are some shots from this year's circus, taken by a friend of mine who is both a photographer and a clown. Not many people can put both of those titles on a business card.

This is the only 7-person pyramid in the world comprised of all females. It was taken from the catwalk. It is an amazing feat, performed by young girls all under the age of 19.

I love this picture because it was always one of my favorite acts to perform. I wish I was still that bendy! The hoop is hanging by the neck of her upside-down partner.

This was also taken from the catwalk, and shows how big our circus band is. All volunteers, and all fun.

And these little piggies....well, I like to play my flute barefoot. What can I say? At least the red polish covers the dark purple toes, still courtesy of Grandma's Marathon. (and I have no idea why he snapped pictures of my feet, but like I said, the guy is a clown.)

Photographer credit: Thank, C U Smile!

7-person pyramid = awesome!
Why is THAT not featured on main page of CNN instead of stuff like death of Taco Bell dog?

Is it wrong of me to say that girls that bendy make me have ... um ... "amorous" thoughts?

Does that make me a pig?

Because pig is what I was going for.

That 7 person pyramid was cool for sure!
I'd give anything to be even just a little "bendy" these days!

I cannot get over that you're actual circus folk. It's just too freaking cool. :)

Hey, the new blog is up and running (and I've mysteriously switched species...)

Your toes are lookin' mighty nice for being a runner. Made me miss my toe ring :(
