Waiting to fly through the air...

This is a trapeze sort of contraption into which little kids are strapped and then allowed to bounce to astounding heights, do flips, and generally have a great time in relative safety.

Stuff like that makes me dizzy, but kids love it.

I saw this quote from you in a comment at another site: " Is inertia a philosophy?" and it made me LOL.

I would have fun doing this! :)

Looks like some kind of torture device!

"Relative" being the operative word. I just saw something on the tube about all the injuries kids get in places like this. Supervision isn't always great. Did you happen to notice how it was here?

On the positive side...great photo! I really like the balance, the light and the subject. It almost looks like they are getting ready to have some sort of religious experience. Just a fine piece of work! (Like the artist himself) :)

They look to waiting calmly. I'll bet they had a blast!

Hope that photo wasn't taken in the mall, otherwise you may run the risk of being bounced to astounding heights yourself... by mall security?!

I would never do bungee jumping but I would try this! :-)

Great capture.

Sounds like fun. I wonder if my stomach would rebel. MB

I hope they don't try this fancy stuff later on without the harness. Just saying.
