Photo of the day: Soaring over Seattle

I was in Seatte for the Gay Pride Parade, walking around watching everyone get set up for the festivities. These guys were practicing on their trampoline, and I shot a few frames from behind, looking up at the sky, trying to catch them in mid air, with some success. The spotter in front of the trampoline, at the back of the pickup pulling the float, saw me taking pictures and said "hey, come up here, the view is better!" It indeed was, with better skyscrapers behind the jumper, and from that angle they were facing me. I took several pictures and then they asked to see them -- "that's your payment for coming up here," they said. I couldn't believe how good this looked in the camera, and am even more pleased to see how well it looks on the computer screen! Too bad it wasn't a bluer sky, but who am I to complain? It still captures the buoyant mood of the day.
