The Photographer Himself

She Always Did Love to Dance

At Mid Rivers Mall (which probably has some silly Westfield Shoppingtown X name officially), there are two trampolines. For $6.00 you can have a turn jumping on the trampoline. Although you could get a mighty fine hamburger for six dollars, some people might prefer to be in the picture of the day.

That's thornspeak on the left and azigazi on the right. The latter has very good form when jumping; while in mid-air her toes point and she extends her legs with style. The former has quality hair.

The camera was set to 1/40 sec. exposure, which is really far too long to capture jumpers in motion. kamoranakrre supposes that, if you're bored, you can figure out what speed they're going based on that info and the image alone. You won't find him wasting his time like that, though.

(The coördinates are in the middle of the mall, rather than in the appropriate wing thereof. I hope that's okay with you. It's okay with me! Maybe one day I'll start carrying a GPS device so as to always get the exact location of my pictures... but not today.)
