the show must go on

The true person is
Not anyone in particular;
But like the deep blue color
Of the limitless sky,
It is everyone,
Everywhere in the world.

Dōgen Zenji (1200 – 22 September 1253) zen master

leaving the chalk festival on sunday, I ran into two fellows who were having a blast with their bikes and a wall. after their first run up the wall I asked if they'd run the wall again so I could snap a few pics. they happily complied. when viewed as a slide show the result can be considered a little stop action action. in retrospect I'd should have continued snapping until the second bike finished the run, oh well, it's still a good show!

the show must go on from pink floyd's the wall

wall wednesday continues .... perhaps when i run out of walls, the mouse will start playing wordless wednesday, I just love those alliterations!

Is this mural from the chalk festival? Amazing! Almost makes me claustrophobic! ;^)

Great mural! Looks like just about every comics superhero is in there.

Awesome mural....the kids on the bike's are really brave and daring. Makes me wish I was a kid again. Back then I wasn't so brave and daring...but if I had the chance to do it all over again from my age now I'd probably have more guts to try those stunts on the bike.
Cool the stop action.

Looks like "Spiderman" from the wall took a bike ride! ;-)

Fantastic mural. I don't want to be the people in that room when one of those kids go through the window.

I loved the photos of the boys and their bikes. We are so fearless at that age.
