Plate Spinning

Nope this is not about duplicating OS images within computer harddrives, this is about spinning plates. These lovely ladies were quite talented at gymnastic feats while maintaining spinning plates balanced on sticks.

It was impressive, no doubt about it, but these were not ordinary plates either. If you look closely you can see that these plates have been manufactured with a hole to capture the stick.

There are more pictures to see if you follow the link.
One of the challenges I encountered while taking these pictures was other people's heads. That is the explanation of the black smudge in the lower right of this next image. If you want to take pictures at an event like this you have to plan ahead and arrive early so you can get a seat with good sight lines. Please keep in mind that you may have people behind you and they deserve to see the show as well.
