I remember having one c.1959. My hula-hooping skills were weak. Got some good sports photography practice capturing Anna (6 1/2) on the back deck. She can do it with very little movement or a lot of twist and sway. She even knelt and “hooped” for what seemed to me to be a long time. Maura(19 mos) clapped and yelled,” Yay Anna”. Perhaps a video camera would have been better but the objective was to show motion with a still photograph. (And I learned how to make the registered trademark symbol using the alt-R on the keyboard)
I beat a 10 year old girl on a cruise in a hula hoop competition. one of my finer moments in life
Love the way you caught her hair in her face. I really love black and white photos!
When it involves hula hoops,I’m a spectator.
You met the objective Ruth!The great teacher in you will always surface 🙂 Cool picture.
Love your black/white photos this week. This photo makes me think that the trick to hula hooping might be to never touch the hoop!!!!! 🙂
Sometimes the simple things in life are the best aren’t they?
