The Juggler



I caught this guy at the Farmer's Market a few weekends back. The glass ball was heavier than it looks. He juggled this with such grace. If it were me it all you would hear is the crash of breaking glass.

I'd be up close with my camera and then he would probably lose his concentration.

I've seen a similar performance before . . . they sure make it look easy. Must take lots of practice!

That would probably be a couple pounds of glass if it is solid. He has kind of a Van Gogh going when I first saw the photo.

I wish I were so well coordinated.

I always envy the jugglers: I would like to do what they do so effortlessly!

I'm right there with you on this one. There would be glass everywhere.

It must have weighed a ton, Randy! Lots of concentration needed.

Beautiful concentration.

Looks like there would be a lot of glass crashing if all your blog friends tried with you! ;-)
