Standing Tall

Taken at the Festival of the Sea at Lisbon, in 2006. This stilt walker was a member of the same troupe of actors as the juggler I showed the other day.

Oh, I like the way the shape of the photo enhances the feeling of height.
Strong verticals and crazy pants - a good combination! I like this quite a bit.

HA! We all like the crop, Ellie. (Very inspiring, actually, which I hope I don't forget!)

This chap is exceedingly colorful! I'm glad he had a perfect place to rest without falling down. smile

A giant !! Not very convenient for walking I gues !! smile
Wow ! A very tall man ! I need that to take best pictures from the top to the down smile smile
I love all the vertical lines and the shape of the picture emphasizes it. I like Robin's idea of a mega print.
I love that pose but I the geezer looks knackered from walking on those sticks. Good pic
Clever cropping, the fact he is standing between the columns and the poles accentuates the sense of hight and narrowness. I wonder if you asked him to pose there. Everything that was wrong about the juggler is right here. Great job, Ellie!

Long guy in a long pic holding onto a long pole. Do you long to visit Lisbon again? Great stuff.
The pics format enhances the feling of tall. I get some associations to the first Morocco pic I posted - all the flag poles - yours is more colourful though smile
Looks like everyone has said it all ...... except the title should be " It's time for a Kit Kat " smile
