At one of the maritime festivals at Yarmouth, there were a couple of old sailing ships tied up at the quay. One of the spectacles performed, was an acrobat doing a routine on a rope from the rigging. I must have taken forty or fifty photos of his routine. I chose the best and cut him away from the background. I had to extend the ropes, because of course, they stopped at the edge of the photo frame. The background took a long time to realise, but is a Photoshop pattern. (A1).
