The Diabolo Pictures Thread
« on: December 07, 2008, 11:05:17 am »
I had a search and it seems after all these years nobody has came up with a diabolo pictures thread (Art, but not pictures.)
So go on - Post your diabolo pictures, especially of you in the act.

Today. Taken at exactly the right moment! Points for whoever guesses what the trick is. :P

Backstage at "Nöjesteatern" in Malmö. Not the most technical of tricks but the angle is cool.

This is fantastic, but can you all wait another few hours? I'm about to ditch our current gallery software and transfer everything to a new format. Then we can post the photos there and embed them here. It helps long term maintainability and makes these things easier to find in the future.

Nate and Jacob - were these shot in a dark room with a strobe light? Stunning. I especially like the string patterns in this one.

Yah, they were done with a multiflash strobe in a dark room with the lights turned off and all external sources of light blocked to the best of our abilities.  I agree, the strings on the fan look super cool superimposed on each other.  I think that one looks kinda like a smiley face with a short fro :)

Just got my hands on some MB yellow and the new yellow-orange Henrys stuff. Thought I'd take a photo for the gear sticky:
[smg id=314]

Interestingly, the yellow and pink don't look identical... although perhaps I have the new yellow. That's a topic for another thread. Thanks to JC for the orange (and probably that old Henrys yellow too!). Thanks to sean_ for the new Henrys yellow string. Thanks to my parents for the pink. Thanks to other people's new sticks that I borrowed most of the other stuff from. Sheesh - do I ever end up buying my own string these days?
