When I was a kid, I did gymnastics for years. (Not many people know that!)
And now, every Olympics, it’s one of the events that I always tune into… It’s so beautiful the way that the competitors move around the floor, or fly from bar to bar, the (almost terrifying!) flips they do on that beam.
I just think this setting of Los Angeles’ Angels Gate Park is such a beautiful context to showcase such a graceful sport. The women featured are gymnasts currently competing to be a part of the USA’s 2016 Olympic team, and they captured it all in just 3 or 4 takes…
So pretty! So bendy!
And simply beautiful.
