A Ray of Sunlight.

 

David – Lache Cat.

 

Today was the first day of December; rabbits, rabbits, rabbits! Why on earth anyone still says that at the beginning of any month which has the letter ‘r’ in it hoping to ensure good luck for the duration of that month, or so superstition has it, makes me laugh. If you’ve never heard of that before then have a quick read [1]. Anyhow, back to my blog telling. We are expected to have one of the worse winters on record and the media is covering it as ‘the worse winter for six decades, 100 days of snow’ or so they are reporting, as when that will happen is anyone’s guess! We’ve had a very good summer this year compared to previous ones and even now while we are approaching winter (December 21st –  March 20th) and it’s been a pretty mild one at that, with us still getting summer feeling days and even the sunsets to go with them at times. We’ve had only but a few rainy and cold snaps here and there, which have all diminished pretty quickly. I was planning to be up nice and early to seize the day and make the most of it before it got dark early, though that was short lived when I woke up thirty minutes before the time we were meant to be meeting. As always, I was in two minds if to go at all, but with multiple people being out and running late too I decided to get ready quick time so I could get there if slightly later.

I arrived to see Yaz, Phil and David already there training as I walked across the field feeling the freezing cold breeze as I arrived. It was good to see and have Yaz back out training again and the fact he had been in the UK for a month or so and likely to be here until well into New Year was even cooler as it meant there would be plenty more times to jam with him until he lives again, for good. As you can see by one of the portrait I captured of him, he was ecstatic with being out and had a self endued Parkourgasm, that or something more sinister was happening off shot! The biggest surprise of the day was when the gargantuan Morgan turned up, who I hadn’t seen since he used to come down and train Nottingham on regular basis with the rest of the Kirby lot back in 2006/7. It’s crazy just how quickly the years flown by and Morgan hasn’t changed one bit, and remained as tall as ever, he could even reach and grasp the top of the bars from standing! Later on Kinga arrived and then Zain informed us he would be down via text, even though originally he hasn’t planned to be out today he had changed his mind once he had woke up. The only problem with locating where Zain was while on his journey to us was that his phone speaker was broken and so if you rang him he could here what you were saying but couldn’t speak back to you.

There were so many kids at the park this weekend training, it was as busy as when the park was first built with the masses attending. I got some images and test filming of David doing the lache cat, which was featured in a new Npk video [2]. I gave the lache cat a few attempts, but being too scared of my ankle snapping into two on impact I couldn’t commit to doing it at all. The lache cat made for some really interesting images with how the body moves during the movement and just before landing it made people look like they are sitting on an invisible chair. I captured one image from below which worked really well as did having the camera on the wall next to the wall people landed on. It really was so cold today even with the sun I was feeling frozen and had to keep skipping to remain warm, I tried a few muscle ups as and when my body would let me which I failed at tremendously. As always I spent most of my time chasing Zain around getting portraits of him and I even managed to capture a few images of the camera shy Kinga who was trying to hide away from the camera by using people as human shields while Zain opted to hide behind the walls and rails to mask himself from being shot. I think around seventy percent of my images on any given training day are of portraits…

The day was a strange one when a flock of birds came flying above us from one direction to other, something I hadn’t seen before and I had no idea what they were as it used to be geese that did it, perhaps the warmer winter has confused them. Later on the guys were doing some flag movements and pole dancing, which can be seen from the few images below. With it getting colder and now darker Phil set a few challenges for people to try in aid of keeping warm. One of those were standing on a low rail while having to lower down so you are below the bar handing and then try and get up the other side of the rail. This made for some great fails and hysterics as people struggled and failed at doing the challenge. We also all tried the variants of holding human flags the classic arm around the pole, full extended and then the shoulder ones and a few other ways we could think of. Yaz and Kinga decided to head off early due to it being too cold to train, leaving the rest of us out to train a bit longer while it was dark. Before we knew it, it was only myself and Zain left to our own devices and we decided to use the workout park to kill some time before the bus was due, which Zain had to catch and with that I walked with Zain to the bus stop and then left for for home.
