Daily Deviation

Given 2012-11-05
Worth it by *IfigeniaG Could be a regular "street perfomer" image. But look at the contrast. A man grounded on a wheelchair, a man floating and sitting in the air. ( Featured by StamatisGR )

Omg, I've been there. I saw guys like that there too, but just balancing on a cane, not holding one another up! But I recognize the church in the background, I think.
I saw one of these types of performers setting up once, so I know how it's done. XD Still awesome though.

lol I love this illusion. Seen it with one guy floating, but one guy floating over the head of another is even funnier ;-D

I think Ive seen some performers do the same trick in Stuttgart, Germany. That was really one of the performances that caught my eye and made me stop.
The guiding lines in your photograph are quite subtle, but clever! I just wish there was a bit more space in the foreground, because my eyes always seem to slip away from the left side of the image to the crowd in the middle...

as far as i know even in 1950 there were magicians in middle east region that were able to perform similar tricks with ropes, i have seen filmed material somewhere when they show these tricks to soldiers apparently from england or some other western country.

Judging from the shops and the church in the background the photo was taken in Nuremberg, Germany. When I lived there you could practically see street performers similar to those two every day.

Great shot, and it's funny for me, as it reminds me of a match in Mortal Combat. Just imagine the word "Fight" popping up in the middle of the picture with that classic voice. :D

:icontheyardplayground: comment: When a street performer deserved to be in a street shoot. Interesting format (crop). If you have the original with the wheelchair intact, but tilted, it's more desirable than cutted because it what maked the shoot. Well spotted.

:icontheyardplayground: comment: You found in a 'street performer' scene the true street moment. The wheelchair, a man grounded to it, makes a strong contrast with the man floating and sitting in the air. Lots of nice details also in the expressions of the audience. Very well captured. Maybe you could have avoided to cute the wheelchair on the two edges :lol:

Supposedly that staff that the floating guy is holding actually travels back through his sleeve and holds him in a seat... However, were that the case, the guy on the bottom would have to be inhumanly strong. It is, to say the least, impressive.

joeltonongkh Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012
yup..but imagine what if same goes to the guy at the bottom...steel alike linking through his sleeve as well and travel down to his seat, so actually he doesn't need any holding power but have to be aware about the condition of the linking material...could be bend steel or something hard but flexible...

Probably. It'd be hell to set up, though.
