Otherworldly Circus

Sunday afternoon I went to see the youth of Madison and surrounding cities perform in (among other things) a circus. All the acts were technically kids, but there were a couple who were right up there at the adult end of the scale. The circus was great fun, and you could tell the kids had worked hard to bring it all together and make a bunch of solid performances. There were jugglers, unicyclists, aerial dancers, stilt walkers, puppeteers, clowns, and so much more.

The lighting wasn't very conducive to photography, and I was in a back row of the bleachers. Nonetheless, I got a bunch of good ones despite using shutter speeds of 1/5 second and apertures ranging from f/4.5 to f/6.5 depending on how much zoom I used. All were hand held, even at those speeds. For a couple of the individual people shots I was able to use a flash. The rest of the set can be found HERE. (
