Photographer's Note

A fun picture today. I went to see the 'Shanghai Acrobats' while in Shanghai - they are supposedly the best acrobatic group in China!
Such an amazing show... this was part of it!

A man, a part of a drain pipe and a wooden plank. First he was just balancing himself with 1 piece of wood on the pipe. Then a girl bought another board and 4 glasses. He put the glasses carefully in the 4 corners, all the while balancing, then placed the second plank. The right leg went on the top, and the left leg still on the bottom one... balancing... and finally - oupla! He got on to the second one.

He repeated this 3 times and this is what it looked like at the end... but that's not all!! - If you want to know what happened after, check tomorrow's upload!

Tech: Rotated, cropped, sharpened... saved for web.
