52 Weeks Of Donna's Life

Donna's Photo Challenge

30. One Step at A Time


Elphnt Stpng 2

We attended the Loomis Bros. Circus this last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the trained animals, agile and strong humans, the inevitable circus clown and the excited crowd of children. Each circus puts its own slant on the acts presented but the balancing elephant was one we had not seen before. One of these large beasts began by standing on a circular platform and, with a young woman on his back, stepped from the platform — one step at a time — until he was balancing on this (fortified and buttressed) ball. Whew!! I realized I was holding my breath. However, this big elephant managed to get all four of his feet on the sphere — and then nimbly stepped off. All the while, the woman on his back was able to maintain her relaxed pose and her circus poise.

An enthusiastic amateur photographer, I enjoy picturing the events, people, animals and things in my life. And so joining in the "52 Week Challenge" of interpreting life through a lens sounds as if it will be a lot of fun -- presenting my view through the lens and seeing how others in our photography group interpret their views concerning a given subject.
