Unicycle



Yesterday I showed a picture of one way to get around a college campus. Today I'm showing another. This is definitely new to me especially since FSU has so many hills. This student is pedaling uphill on her unicycle with her backpack on. When she passed me, I did a double take and fortunately I had my camera ready and was able to get her picture as she rushed to class.

If her studies don't work out, she can always run away to join a circus. Congratulations for being quick off the mark.

That must be very difficult with one wheel, she is an acrobat!

I had a jury summons the other day and one of the men there was a unicycle instructor, how strange is that?

Haha! Lois that's awesome you were ready to snap this photo! Either she's from a circus family here in SRQ or she couldn't afford two wheels. Fun capture.

A lot easier than trying to find a parking spot.

You better hush your mouth! lol....I saw the emergency vehicles come in the neighborhood too. They went all the way to Blueberry and turned right....thanks for thinking of me though, thank the Lord is wasn't!

Amazing! Must have tremendous balance. Can't imagine doing that!

Great shot. And a good reminder to always have your camera ready to go.

Re your comment on the Olan Mills gals...I think they were so taken aback when they saw my camera they couldn't do anything except smile! But they were very nice and got as big a kick out of it as I did!

That is something you don't see every day!

Beautiful picture, I think it's a fabulous idea to go to school using the bike!

How funny! Great shot! You did a great job having to snap it so quickly.

Thanks so much for coming to Lucy's party. :)

Great shot! It's amazing how she can balance herself and that backpack on the unicycle! Pretty cool :D

I wish I had that much balance!

Now, I certainly won't be getting one of those to ride to work!

Wow, I'm impressed! I'll take the Segway myself, thank you. :)
