Taken two weeks ago (coincidentally on a Friday) when the skies were a lot bluer and less rainy than they are right now.

Visit Skywatch Friday to see more skies from around the world, both blue and otherwise.

Great capture--awe-inspiring actually because I've never been able to climb anything but a [short]tree.
Thanks for a glimpse of blue sky too.

I couldn't even squeeze my hand around that rope. :)
He has strength and poise!
Nice shot Robin!

Beautiful photo. Did you get this street performer's name and e-mail? I bet if you gave him a copy of your photo it would totally make his day. I know this because I am a street performer (used to play on Alenbi Street in Tel-Aviv, in the tunnel, until they demolished it). People take my picture all the time. Sometimes the photographer would send me their photo. This makes me more happy even then receiving donations!

All the best,

Robin said...

Wow, I'd forgotten about the tunnel. I didn't catch his name, I had to leave before he was finished unfortunately, but I know someone studying circus arts here, maybe he could help me track him down, that's a great idea.

I really like finding great street performers! You captured this one so well! Amazing, and nice sky to match.

A tricky performance captured nicely by you. It must have been interesting. Still trying to figure out how does he do it.

Have a good weekend.

Really cool capture!!

moneythoughts said...

You know the expression, give a person enough rope and they will hang themselves? Well, this person appears on his way to doing just that.

Fiona said...

That is a fantastic photograph. The more you look at it the more your appreciate it. It gives me an idea for some jewellery. I just love dropping by to see what you are posting up.

Shubd said...

What an interestingly knotty issue !

Wow. How high up was he? I would have loved to have seen the start and finish oh his act...I'm impressed. And I'm a firm believer of doing things better barefoot...even though I'm a shoe addict. I walk so much better barefoot.
Great SWF photo Robin!

Makes me dizzy looking at it! So, you just have people performing for tips? I guess our town is too small for that. Looks like great fun to watch.

Marvelous choice for Sky Watch ;-)
