Today’s Gallery Theme: Handstands
Leo and Jaymee have been looking to extend their ‘repertoire’ of balance and fakir work, and our friend Ron down at the gym suggested that they have a go at trapeze work, including handstands thereon as well as Jaymee performing from Leo’s hands while he hangs from his feet. This will be a neat addition to the family shows if it works out, and Ron is a good teacher for balance too. So they had a great session yesterday evening, while Dave and I went on the resistance machines with Leon and Dane, who are staying with us for today’s reunion with Ethan and Jack. Clare was there to encourage Jaymee, too, as well as pulling a few pounds herself. Leo and Jaymee also want to do the teeth-by-teeth hang thing that Dave and I do, and they tried that too.
But what they’re definitely best at is balance – handstands, including planche, and one-arm definitely – so that’s todays picture theme!
Shall we call that one ‘disinterested dog’?
If my references to all these assorted people are pretty meaningless and you don’t understand our interest in acrobatics and cabaret performances, best start here:
It would be great if you would give the books a go but, if you’re just here for the pictures, here come some more hand balances!
Do it ‘naked as nature intended’. Feels good. Here’s another:
Your athletic body + sun + a desert! A handstand is surely inevitable!
No desert? OK, well, the gym’s empty, so wtf…
A bit of a back bend, now:
And I almost forgot – if a partner’s available…
And a sunset to end…
