Freerunner

More from the Thames Festival. You'll get a few more glimpses of this festival while I am feeling sorry for myself with my cold and not inspired to be out taking new pictures.

They're loads of fun though. This is a free runner in action. They are amazing. Urban acrobatics. No safety nets and pausing for applause, as in the circus. These guys are in it for the fun and maybe a title at the championships.

Brilliant action shot!

I've just got over a cold - very annoying. Take Night Nurse (at night!) best cure going :)

They are amazing aren't they? There is a milder form conducted in officers' messes called 'Mess Mountaineering' - it has led to broken limbs as well as broken equipment so perhaps not so very mild, though it is usually fuelled by alcohol . . . you know, no sense, no feeling!

They are amazing.

I'm having a problem with a cold too.

Hi Mo,

WOW! This is an amazing shot! You caught him with his head down. That's fantastic!

Best regards

Cool shot! Hope you get better soon.

Wow. Wonder how many times he fell on his head before he perfected that.

You asked if this meant the end of summer. No, actually, September and October are two of our hottest months! July and August, with all the fog, are generally cool, to the point of 19th century American writer Mark Twain quipping that the "coldest winter (I) ever spent was July in San Francisco!"
