Juggling as a Visual Spectacle
The images in the title bar show the effect that's produced juggling
glowing balls, using fire stave, and a human catherine wheel. This
isn't just camera trickery. Due to the way the eye feeds information
to the brain, the balls leave a trail of light behind them when
juggled in the dark, and the stave makes huge swirls of fire, and
can be used to create huge fire balls. Always a crowd pleaser. If
you look closely at the picture of the 'catherine wheel' on the
far right, you can make out the person in the middle, just to give
you an idea of scale.
A Little Video ...
quite good - Oh my God!" One of the great pleasures of
juggling is when you create something new. This little video was
originally put together to help teach another juggler how to do
a new four ball trick I made up. It was filmed outside the Cherry
Trees pub in Whitstable. Listen closely to the soundtrack. The "Oh
my God" line wasn't ours. It was a reaction from a two patrons
who happened to be standing next to the cameraman when they suddenly
noticed what we were doing. Many thanks to the people involved,
it's always nice to be appreciated.
