Weekly Photo Challenge: Launch

Launch into the air!!! What about flying?!

Well, the truth is that I put this photos upside down, as you have probably guessed!🙂

These men are the “Voladores de Papantla” (Flyers of Papantla). It is a ceremony/ritual which has its roots in the pre-Hispanic period and presently best known as associated with the town of PapantlaVeracruz.

  4. I think this is a brilliant interpretation of this week’s subject. You cannot doubt how the photographs fit in with the title “Launch”. Thank you for sharing. I bet these are great to watch, just as they are in the photos.
    Thank you for visiting my blog and I look forward to seeing more from you in the weeks to come.

        Haha no problem, Cedric!

        By the way, I am working on a post about Why We Blog and am asking bloggers if they could give me maybe a 3-5 sentence answer (could be shorter or longer really) to the question: Why do you blog? I would quote you and put a link to your blog of course. Would you mind participating in this? Thanks so much!🙂
