Default Micro Wrestling

About this time last year my wife and I went to a midget wrestling match here in Atlanta. 12 months later and it was on again - we had to go again, it is so much fun.

Here are some of my efforts (mostly with the 5DMkIII and 85mm 1.8)

Fun looking set! Quite enjoyed them - though you have No.4 twice.
4 and 7 are my personal faves...

yep sorry for the double - have fixed with more flying midget action.

It is a strange spectacle, at first it feels wrong, but then you see that the wrestlers themselves are totally into it, and you relax and start enjoying it.

Lol, love the fact that you haven't posted images here in aaaages even though you've bought a new camera.
And then when you do, it's this

Great pics by the way so much Intensity.

I was recently in the states with my brother and apparently (although it is banned now) they used to have midget tossing.

Basically midgets get dressed up in Velcro suits and people pay good money to toss a midget on to a wall.

The funny thing is that the midgets are now in an uproar because they believe they have a right to be tossed if they so choose to.

link for any interested in

That last shot could well be the greatest thing ever posted on the internet.
