Ghost Runner

Ghost Runner

Aerial act at the Dane County Fair in Madison, Wisconsin. The eerie effect matched the sultry summer feel of the night, the aerialist maneuvering a hundred feet in the night sky. Whatever would possess someone to choose this as an ambition? Nerves of steel, as the saying goes? Risk-taker? Ghost runner.

    I never could understand what motivates people to take these kinds of dare-devil risks. Without them – however – you wouldn’t have the opportunity to have captured such a spectacular image. Really nice!

    This is a very cool photo, Bo. Great capture.

    I used to want to fly through the air on the trapeze. I can sort of understand why someone would want to do this. Not that I have a desire to fly through the air on anything these days. lol!

    I think the blur adds to the sense of this one. Nice tones.

    You wouldn’t get me up there. I agree with Laurie’s comment on the blur. Very cool shot.

    Good photos Bo! This one intrigues me..I like the mystery of the photo, and why someone choses to do this! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing.
