There is always such joy expressed in the form of free running. It's almost magical to watch people perform such feats. I sound so old... free running is awesome!

Yeah, I have issues with lines, even when I consciously try to get it right, I often don't. Not sure why this happens..

Gosh! This is a good photo but I feel like it could just have been better.
Maybe it's the imperfect framing, or the blurring caused by the wide aperture you used, but it gives me the feeling of being a step behind a perfect photo.
A pity, but I like it anyway.

Felicitations on the DD. However, I will say, to be more accurate, your comment should have read: Free-runners practising free-running. Free-running and Parkour are indeed two different disciplines. I don't think you would have caught a traucer doing a handstand in such a location. ;)

Still, felicitations. Capturing the human body doing any physical feat regardless what it is called is a treat. :thumbsup: :)

Was about to say the same thing :) They -are- different, and the practitioners are usually very particular about making the distinction as well.

Generally, if it involve acrobatics (like handstands..) it's usually not parkour.

Agreed. Great shot and all, but it's really frustrating to see free-running being referred to as parkour; and it only furthers the misinterpretation. I'd recommend clearing this up make to things easier for us traceurs trying to pass on our teachings of parkour. Congrats on the DD :).
