Lesson 1.........The Grip

By ZenTony
This shot was taken in Verona. One week every year they have a festival all over the Town celebrating medieval games.; this one being the art of cheese rolling. A queue of young lads waited patiently for a lesson from the "Grand Master" into the technique.
As soon as I uploaded it I realised I needed to crop a foot out. See V1
V2 is the execution !

A smashing shot, Tony.
Good to see kids taking lessons from an elder.

Something that seems to have been lost here in the UK John !
A lovely image
The concentration on the little boy's face
Cheese rolling ... could so easily be a Monty Python sketch ... and yet this looks far too serious for that
Well done Tony

Nice little scene Tony.

See what you mean about that annoying foot top right. Otherwise, spot on.
