Photographer's Note

Part 7 of a 13 part series on slacklining on library lawn at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

This one's not the flashiest or most dynamic of the series, but i wanted a closeup of feet on the slackline.

When slacklining, it's important to keep your feet straight on the line from heel to toe, and it is easiest to stand with only one foot on the line at a time. The reason for this is that as you bring one foot in front of the other to place it on the line, it twists your body and throws off your balance from the more naturally stable position of standing on one foot with the other leg being used to preserve balance.

And the bonus picture is another fairly gratuitous pseudo self-portrait... i wanted to try to take a picture of my feet while on the line... and the focus ended up being off, but i still found it at least somewhat interesting.
