The local shopping mall had the grand opening of a new addition on Saturday. The festivities included a "Cirque du Soleil" type ice skating and acrobatic show. Here are a couple of images I managed from up in the bleachers. Ok yes they are a little "artsy" and I tried to make a comment on performer's concentration, the "distance" between this kind of performer ( physical) and those he is entertaining and how it's sometimes hard to "see" for looking from the audience. Somewhere in the back of my memory there is a "famous" painting that has these elements of dark shadow with highlighted foreground images. Hmmmmm? . Too much? Ok- cool dude in flowing robes jumping and flipping using "powerizer" jumping stilts.
