Timed Out

Sometimes, I want to show you new things I can do on a pole.  But, you might not know how difficult these things can be to capture.  Because I take them with a self timer.  Meaning, I have exactly 10 seconds to set the timer, determine the best angle for the shot, hop on the pole and hold it.  Often with blood rushing to my head and it's hard not to look ridiculous with a vein popping out of your head, especially when you're in pain on top of that. And there are so many times I can't even get into the move in 10 seconds.  So I have a lot of shots of me in weird positions looking pissed.  Really, really pissed. Cause I am.  If I shot it in video, it would be a stream of curses.

This is one of my favorite moves,
 bonus, it's fairly easy to photograph too

Butterfly is also highly photogenic.

This was me attempting superman,
which looks nothing like this, I just timed out.

This is an attempt at pyramid,
which I did get later.

And this is an early dismount from something,
I have no recollection of...all that blood rushing to my head and all.

This is Gemini, unless it's Scorpio.  I'm turning my smile upsidedown here
 cause I don't particularly like this pic

Pyramid, nailed it!
Unless it's called tripod...

This is triangle or "d" or in my case backwards "d".

Just made it, you can see my hand is still in motion.
This knee hold must've taken about 15 tries
and I still have the bruises to prove it.
If you haven't timed out and want to see me at my last recital with the lights on even, here it is...

First- I had no idea you were using a self-timer, but had one of your minions pressing the shutter. Changes one's perception of the act dramatically.

Secondly, I am always amazed that you don't complain about the myriad bumps on your head from performing your acrobatics. Kudos on those performances.

The first image is also my favorite...the sleek line embodies such frozen grace. : )

@Roy-Yes, the self timer changes everything and makes it even more of a challenge.
@David-Thank you much!

Wow! You are amazing! No...you're fricken amazing!!
I had no idea you had progressed this far with pole dancing/balancing. I love the music you chose too. Well done, Marie!

Amy Brown said...

Wow! This just makes me think...I need to work out more. Amazing.

Joy Page Manuel said...

Amazing! Is there really anything else to say? :-))

Muriel Jacques said...

Marie, you completely rock! That said, I think that I will stick to running in the park. Pole dancing looks far too complicated...
