Snap: Action and Adventure!

2016…and time for a new meme from Helena. This year it is “Snap”: between 2 and 4 photos that create a visual set.

I joined in the Winnipeg edition of the 500px Red Bull Photography Global Photowalk this past Saturday, and the theme of the walk was “Action and Adventure”. There were about 30-35 people in the walk…which, as usual, started at The Forks.

The first “action and adventure” we spotted was a man juggling some kind of stick with weighted ends(maybe they get lit on fire for night shows?):


The second activity was a gathering of guys practicing parkour….in case you don’t know what parkour is, check out this article from Wikipedia hereI later found out from cruising Facebook that the Winnipeg Parkour group had planned a “jam” and lots of cool people were expected. What they didn’t expect was to be ambushed by a large group of photographers who were determined to get some great shots!

The first photo shows a guy flipping off the stone wall, with one of the photographers from the photowalk in position for a great shot:


The next is someone leaping, while the rest of the gang relaxes:


And lastly, a mid-air flip:


I didn’t finish the complete walk(I had to go rescue Stewie of course!)…which was too bad since the last stop on the walk was the skateboard park! Next year!!!
