That's Gonna Hurt...
« on: July 20, 2007, 06:30:00 AM »
This is hardly Parkour, but I thought it was a sweet shot.

I work at a summer camp in Michigan and one of my main jobs is "camp photographer."  I took the following picture during the "slip-n-slide" yesterday.

This kid embodies fearlessness.  Or recklessness...

He went face-first down the 300-foot zipline, too...

If you click on the link and put a space after it, and then hit enter, it'll load.

Classic Geocities trick dating back to 1999. I <3 the internet.

Anyway. Great picture. :D

That's a really great picture.  If I was that kid, I would treasure it through my adult life.

That photo is Fifteen Kinds of Awesome. :D

Did he hurt himself after it was taken? Man... to be that fearless again. :)

Thanks for sharing. *great* shot! You really have an eye!
She followed slowly, taking a long time,
as though there were some obstacle in the way;
and yet: as though, once it was overcome,
she would be beyond all walking, and would fly.

He did it a half dozen times, though slightly more reluctantly each time.  It helped that he was landing on tarp-covered sand, but still...


Cool! What camp do you work at?

I work at Pine Trail Camp in western Michigan. (http://www.pinetrailcamp.org)

Living and working here makes for some very interesting Parkour, but I'm going to post about that in a different thread...
