Parkour Gallery – Are You Sure People Don’t Fly?

Efficiency and speed – these are two primary features of parkour – a very specific urban sport discipline, aiming at reaching the destination point in the quickest way possible and overcoming all the obstacles on the way with the help of such skills as running, climbing, jumping, wall scaling, rolling, etc. Parkour is not yet recognized as an official sport discipline… But, who cares? When you look at those guys, running, jumping, falling, and again running along the street, it seems that their art does not need any official recognition, because they do things, which the majority would consider impossible or just above natural capabilities of a human being.

Do you want to see what parkour looks like? If so, then forget about the law of gravitation and get yourself ready for enjoying the stunning pictures of the parkour art, captured by no less skillful and quick photographers. The gallery below demonstrates the nature of parkour art – on these pictures you can see such details that your eye would never be able to recognize in dynamics. Parkour is always about challenge. When a “traceur” (the one, who practices parkour) sees some obstacle on his way, he has to invent the way of overcoming it quickly and in the most efficient way possible. Furthermore, once the obstacle is left behind, it usually takes only a few seconds for another one to appear and for a new challenge to start. That is why parkour belongs to art – the art of constant taking on new and new challenges of the surrounding…

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
