  Monday Morning Mirth  


This brought such a smile to my face! Notice the date this was made – in the springtime, 103 years ago…

It just tickles me to know that one of the first things photographers did with the process once it was out there was to make things that would Make Us Laugh! I’m having a kind of *hooray-for-hollywood* thing behind this – but am especially smiling because of the name of the shooter…

    I was thinking “ouch” every time the top acrobat turned/flipped. Nice routine, shows that time doesn’t change cool acrobatic routines – just style. thanks!

    A couple of years ago I paid a visit to the Edison home/lab/museum in Fort Myers. In one of the display cases along with other personal effects there was a pair of his bathing trunks….knitted!

    What’s really interesting is that circus acrobats are still doing those same moves – as we saw a few weeks ago at Ringling Brothers. I’m amazed at the picture quality!

    Remarkable! And yes, acrobats still make us smile. Their feats never fail to amaze. Happy Monday morning! :-)

    What a display of strength and trust. Those guys are amazing. Despite the leaps in technology between TAE’s day in 1904 and ours in 2007, what he found fascinating then is still fascinating today. Thanks.

    And as impressive & entertaining as it is, the Japanese acrobats have continued to improve their skills!
    Thanks Bonne – that was cool.
