From Wikipedia: Parkour is a physical discipline inspired by human movement, focusing on uninterrupted, efficient forward motion over, under, around and through obstacles (both man-made and natural) in one's environment. Such movement may come in the form of running, jumping, climbing and other more complex techniques. The goal of parkour is to adapt one's movement to any given obstacle.



My brother loves parkour.
And I loved photographing him in action that day.
:)


Full view to enjoy the complete exciting experience. :peace:




EDIT:
Apologies to those I have offended when naming this photo Parkour. I'm changing the title to avoid people flaming the mod that featured my DD, saying 'It's not parkour, it shouldn't be a DD'. :shrug:

Parkour. by *suk0shi-hamu really caught my eye, at first I thought he was doing some crazy handstand on the pillar, then I read the description and found he's actually moving... I've seen some comercials featuring Parkour, but this just seems so much more natural. Enjoy. ( Suggested by DuncanMcNicol and Featured by Ghouldaddy )

I flipped back a few comment pages and read that someone said that this wasn't "Efficient Forward Motion".
Doing a triple back-handspring could be efficient forward motion if the situation called for a triple back-handspring to be done. Who is anyone to say that what he is doing in that picture wasn't the fastest way over? Maybe there was a car speeding at him out of the shot, and instead of going the other route around, he chose this route.

No one can assume that much, even. Don't assume it wasn't efficient; only the Traceur himself and the photographer are apparent witnesses of this.

As a Traceur, myself, this is a nice shot. His leg is a bit high up - I wonder how he landed it. Such a powerful jump, too.

I love parkour and freerunning, I see a good athletic here, and a great photograph!

Me too, I'm really glad me and my brother get along this well even though he's 7 years older :)

I love parkour and freerunning as well, and there was a lot of controversy about whether this shot "fit" the style... Which is why I changed the title. I still think it's a good shot, no matter what you call what he's doing :)

Thanks so much for your comment! :aww:

If someone is saying 'this is Parkour' and 'this isn't Parkour', then I apologize. I personally happen to know that that IS Parkour, and is a very excellent example of the Speed Vault (albeit slightly exaggerated, but it makes better photography, no?).

Great shot, well deserving.

Nitpicking, I would refer the light post - distracting because it's visually appealing and deviates the eyes from the obvious subject.

I'm sorry that some of the parkour community have been less than courteous to you miss. I love the shot and your brother shows a lovely sense of prowess in the art of movement, just as you do in relation to being able to capture this lovely moment. I enjoy both parkour and photography so this is just amazing.

I do apologize again for some of the community's less caring individuals.

Yes, indeed they have said some things that I still don't think were appropriate. And the more I learn about parkour, the more I feel that way. But oh well. I'm so glad you liked it. :)
