    I love everything from the 1940s and older and back in those days the circus was something really amazing. I’m fascinated by the art of the circus, that’s why I also joined a circusschool a couple of years ago. It’s magical to be a part from it!

    Did you notice that in the fifth photo all the shoes would be highly on trend today? The ones on the far right look like Restrepo. I was there in September!

    Cheers,

    Such babes, imagine the stories they tell their grand kids. I did a photo series on a circus in Edinburgh a few years ago, it really is a world of its own.
