Aurelia on the Cloud Swing
Aurelia Wallenda of the Flying Wallendas on the cloud swing. Her performance was breathtaking and reminded me why acrobatic acts alway impress. There's something about the bravery of such a talented and physically strong person performing a graceful routine that will stop you in your tracks.
...and yes she was probably 20ft in the air doing this. AMAZING!
Her legs are darker than the rest of her skin because of fishnet tights she was wearing. I tried to dodge them in Photoshop with limited success. I'll keep practicing on this photo.

Baby Flickr Colors at the Hospital
This image is taken directly underneath the lobby ceiling lights that hang down from a very high ceiling. The lamps slowly change colors, glowing beautifully. An earlier image on my stream shows the lights the lobby with the Christmas tree. The story goes that these lights are programmed to glow blue or pink when another baby is born there. There are about 8 babies a day delivered here! I would not know if the story is true, for I was standing at the delivery area in the hallway at the time baby Virginia made her arrival.
