RINGLING BROS. Circus





Currently, at the Nassau (Veterans Memorial) Coliseum, Hempstead Turnpike, Long Island. 







The fast footwork in unison here
is awesome!

Check out Senior Stuff: Rinkly Rimes   UP TO NO GOOD!




It is a long 2 hours of great, high tech dazzle,  following an hour of previewing performances at the ground level.  What happened to the big top and two rings, one wonders!  

 First, there is a tour of the animal kindom;  the saddest spectacle is of the big cats who seem very lethargic ( and irrelevent today),  both on and off stage.   

This is followed by warm up time when the audience mingles with the actors as they perform spontaneously.     Members of the audience are picked to assist!    

More to come.  It was a photographer's delight for shadows, if you could catch them!

  1. I wonder how many contortionists suffer from arthritis in old age! (I feel a poem coming on!)

  2. I agree with Rinkly - this looks too energetic by half!
    But very interesting even so.

About Me

My photo
JANUS - looking backwards and forwards is a Janus trait - for me a way to record the "in between thought", whether in retrospect, or as a notion for the future. I make original prints, currently etchings. I sometimes write and take photographs. I am inspired by what I see and read. Although postings are chronologically recorded by date and time in this protocol, the images exhibited, often seen in different stages of production, are from another time. So, with each new posting, earlier postings can undergo revision or amplification as will be noted, or requested. The addition of a SNAPSHOTS Blog and a VIRGINIA WOOLF Blog are included because my different interests tend to influence what I do as an artist. There will be a Family Blog, too, for the same reason.
