Angles

For today’s post, I’ve decided just to share some interesting pictures with you which, in various ways, use unusual angles in their composition. Naturally, they are on our general themes of (possibly) gay boys having fun, gym, and so forth!

Let’s start on the beach:

The guy on the right has a great tan, complemented by his vivid Speedos. Next, a stunning effect produced by three mirrors and an inventive photographer:

Another mirror effect, using tiles:

Next, on to the weight room:

Love the old-fashioned spherical dumbells! Next, one more celebration of the photographer’s inventiveness:

The final choice for today is not a clever photo, but definitely all about getting the angles right; arm position relative to body, split of the legs, and wrist flexibility. All towards achieving a perfect ‘top planche’ balance as demonstrated by this Russian boy:

Attaining this position successfully also depends upon developing powerful shoulder strength, and also strong muscles in the upper and lower back. Very effective though, and this guy is definitely an inspiration to us all to get the form absolutely perfect.

And, hey, did you notice, I haven’t mentioned a book once today!

(But you won’t have to scan many other posts to find out what I mean!)

 

 

About tonycavanagh

Born Northampton UK; school Oxford UK and Oak Ridge Tennessee, where I met my wonderful partner Dave, also from UK. Oak Ridge is our main training base for acrobatics and circus stuff, but we also established a base in Wales (UK) to serve us when we are working in Europe. Our 'story', of finding gay love, learning the acrobatics trade and then of how we got shot at during our show (and worse was to follow - just to prove that the risks of being an acrobat are not always the most obvious ones!) are now available in my three books 'Loving the Boy', 'The Power of Love' and 'Against All Odds'. Links available on most blog posts. Actually, waiting for the imminent arrival of the first printed copies was far scarier than anything we do in performance. A fourth book - not about us but exploring the sadness of a gay Native American boy denied his true identity - is currently with an agent for evaluation. watch for 'Let The Future Find Me' in due time. And now to book five... another boy, another quest... seems its always boys...
