Parkour Training by DavidJosephGall Parkour Training by DavidJosephGall
My friend Kurt, founder of Parkour Ways [link] doing Parkour in the suburbs south of Chicago.

Parkour is the physical discipline of training to overcome any obstacle within one's path by adapting one's
movements to the environment. It is a non-competitive, physical discipline of French origin in which participants
run along a route, attempting to negotiate obstacles in the most efficient way possible.

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-05-20
Parkour is a growing non-violent non-competitive sport that keeps kids and adults in shape. It's fun, friendly, social and should be recognized more often. With health and health-care in a crisis, it's important we take care of ourselves. Parkour is a fun way to do just that. parkour training by =DjG

Wonderful shot! I love how you've captured the magnificent colors of the sky, the shapes of the clouds, & the silhouettes of the person, trees, bushes, etc. all in one picture. It blends together really well & makes a beautiful shot.
I think after the color of the sky, my favorite thing about this picture is that you can't see who the person is. You see a profile, & you can tell that it's a male figure (or at least is more than likely male), but you don't know who it is. It makes it easier to imagine that it could be anyone. And if one doesn't read your caption, the "anyone" in the image could be doing anything from some form of martial arts to a dance.
It's not much of a critique, but there's not much more to say other than great shot! You've got a favorite from me! :)
What do you think?

The subject is fascinating. Both of my sons are interested and have talked about how they want to try it... it's something I would definitely encourage.

The photo does it justice. I love the silhouette, the light behind him giving him a glow that fits with the healthy "glow" of the sport. Awesome piece!

Congratulations on the DD.

Parkour... one of my favorite sports to follow. It's not recognized as a true sport, but I think I like the rogueishness of that. B)

Yeah, it's more like a sport for self improvement, rather than a sport for points, money or draft picks.
