The first of each month is a theme day for photobloggers from around the world. For the first day of March, the theme happens to be People In The Street. You can find other interpretations right here.
I'm bending the rules slightly, using these two stiltwalkers from Winterlude, since they were on their way to cross the street. Here they were coming from City Hall.
They seemed to be having fun... or trying to stay balanced!
The pair stopped for a chat before crossing Laurier Avenue to go into Confederation Park. At that height, they had to dip their heads under the entry.
I need a pair of those. Then I could reach things on the upper shelves.ReplyDelete
That looks like so much fun! Those ski poles are a good idea.ReplyDelete
That's one way to get from A to B William :) Fun shot for the theme!ReplyDelete
YIKES! Those stilt walkers must have excellent balance!ReplyDelete
This is a great take on the theme, William! Love stilt walkers and the colors are magnifique! I remember stilt walking when I was a kid. We'd make our own stilts. They weren't this high, though, which is a good thing 'cause we fell down often!ReplyDelete
Stilt walkers....ice. This isn't going to end well.ReplyDelete
Nice photos, William, but I would rather stay safely on the ground.ReplyDelete
Very cool, William, colourful, too!ReplyDelete
@Norma: they would come in handy!ReplyDelete
@Stuart: the poles must help tremendously.
@Grace: thank you!
@EG: you can't walk around on those things after a few drinks.
@Lowell: I've walked around on stilts a couple of times as a kid.
@Jane and Chris: it's not the best of combinations!
@Jan: I suspect many people would!
@Linda: thank you!
Wow! These are great shots William and absolutely perfect for the theme. I thought the same thing about the ice though!ReplyDelete
What fun shots. I tried walking on stilts once. I never could get it to work. It's way harder than these guys make it look.ReplyDelete
What balancing skills these people must have! I can barely stagger around on my own two feet!ReplyDelete
What a great take on the theme. Bright and colorful too. MBReplyDelete
Good memories here. We used to make them as kids and walk the neighborhood impressing kids and adults alike.ReplyDelete
oh, that is so cool! :)ReplyDelete
Probably one of the most unique posts for the theme!ReplyDelete
Very special people!ReplyDelete
Brave souls. Cobble stones and ice are not a good combo!ReplyDelete
Great choice for the theme, something completely different.ReplyDelete
@Lois: I wouldn't want to be going onto the Canal with those!
@Sharon: it certainly is.
@Cheryl: they would have to feel comfortable moving about on these things.
@Birdman: I remember them mostly from a resort we'd go to from time to time as a child. That's where I've tried them.
@TexWisGirl: thank you!
@RedPat: I've been seeing some good takes on the them!
@Paul: they are.
@Mari: no, they're not!
@Jane: thank you.
Oh, yes, it counts. Nice one, William.ReplyDelete
So wonderful and fun!ReplyDelete
One of the oddest theme day pictures!ReplyDelete
No fear of either winter or heights in Ottawa. I don't suppose they could walk that way in snow.ReplyDelete
No, no, these guys are waaay off the street! Great set of pictures, William!!ReplyDelete
These pair are delightful. I smiled when I clicked on your blog :).ReplyDelete
Great set of photos. I bet they have some "tall" stories to tell.ReplyDelete
Now that is a different way of walking the street.ReplyDelete
In the snow, on stilts, amazing. It is hard to capture motion in a photo, and you've done it!ReplyDelete
A great choice for the theme day! I haven't seen another street shot like it!ReplyDelete
Well that's a fantastic Theme Day post! I will never quite understand how ones walks on stilts!ReplyDelete
@Jack: thank you.ReplyDelete
@Luis: as long as you don't lose your balance!
@Linda: from the ones I've seen thus far, yes, I think so!
@Bob: not deep snow... but the park was filled with snow, and they were heading right into it.
@Shantaram: thank you!
@Blossom: they would be used to drawing attention, that's for sure.
@Joan: yes it is!
@Greensboro: thank you!
@Ciel: very carefully!
William, this is a brilliant post for Theme Day. Wow!ReplyDelete
Brilliant interpretation of this theme, William !ReplyDelete
