Bouncing and balance | 31 Days in May #26

Bam, and Summer arrived. The iMac fans were whirring in rhythmic cadence this afternoon as the temperature rose, indicating a weekend of weddings ahead where I expect to see the appearance of lawn games and hoppers. It all gets rather competitive when it comes to Giant Jenga, but I’ll save that for a later post. In terms of old fashioned entertainment, pepper half a dozen space hoppers across an expanse of lawn at a wedding reception and adults will unleash their inner eight year old really quite briskly. Thing is with hoppers that the entertainment is equally as potent for a viewer as it is for the user. Somewhere in the two, or indeed three, perhaps even four decades since they last mounted one of these cult toys, they’ve forgotten how to balance forward motion with all that hoppity inertia. So today’s 31 Days main photograph is the unashamed joy of capturing a guest falling from their perch aboard the humble hopper. I can’t help thinking that an afternoon tipple or three may have been spoiling the rodeo party for this hapless guest? And then a somewhat quieter picture of another guest photographed through trees, no doubt texting out his highest bounce scores of the day to an impressed friends list. As always comments on this or social media, entered into our May draw for the bottle of champers. Just don’t drink and bounce?
