I didn't know.
thanks HL person.
nige, jumping is just so good.
I told myself I would wait until snow, and then jump, but sometimes you just got to JUMP>

nige says:

carpe diem when it comes to jumping, indeed!

come on f'tum, lets see it!

factotum says:

Jump, you f***ker, jump!
Jump into this here blanket wot we are holding,
and you will be all right...

Sorry! That's the song that i haven't been able to get out of my head for the last couple of days. Thank you Derek and Clive (a.k.a. Peter Cook and Dudley Moore)!

alfie, when you wear that coat, you have to feel good. I call it my matrix coat, but opinons go to LOTR coat, so who cares? Either way, I win.

factotum says:

When I first knew her she was a dancer
She'd leap (confidently)
Knowing that should she fall
It would be into the arms of her partner
She never failed to get a curtain call

For years we had been one with the stars
A Pas de Deux of reknown
I'd leap and he'd catch me on the fly
And gently he'd put me down

The heights that I reached were dangerous
And I saw my partner strain
And felt when I had landed
His strength was on the wane

Back before my knees were blue
Backs broke bending in a step for two

For years we had been one with the stars
A Pas de Deux of reknown
I'd leap and he'd catch me on the fly
But once I came crashing down... et cetera

Oh good. I've now got another tune humming in my head.

These are brilliant! Well done on the highlight :)

Factotum, thanks for the lyrics :D

540air says:

Brilliant again. Looks like the coat is morphing into a set of wings in the 3rd pic!! :D

Love the colour of your hair too, it's precisely the colour I'd like mine to go, which it appears to be doing :)

hildegard says:

Great shots. :)
(He jumped down to the deck, broke his f***ing neck. There was no blanket. Laugh? I nearly cried...)

Excellent work swamprose! And I love that coat - I'm all about the full-length coats. Might just wear mine when I do my jumps.

jesson says:

I'm glad you didn't cut your fringe (bangs). They add just that right rock-star feel. :-)

22nd Nov 2006, 02:30

factotum says:

Yes, Hildegard, that's the one- just when I thought I had finally gotten the earworm out of my head...

Rick says:

Great air and hair in the 3rd shot! Fabulous, Swamprose. :D

22nd Nov 2006, 03:49

swamprose says:

thanks Rick. have to work on the ghost jump though.

22nd Nov 2006, 04:59

Rick says:

I still haven't completely figured that one out, but Euphro managed it too. :)

22nd Nov 2006, 05:23

superhero all the way.

great jumping antics there SP :)

22nd Nov 2006, 08:18

nige says:

still loving these!

to get the ghost shot, you have to use a slightly slower shutter speed, but force the flash anyway. try it ;)

swamprose says:

Jigalong and Geo. The southern hemisphere is woefully underrepresented in the jump series.
