July 6th

Ladies and Gentleman!  Boys and Girls!  For our final act, I'd like to introduce you all to the Circulo da Morte aka The Circle of Death!  Inside this steel cage two motorcycles will spin around over and over and over again.  It's completely and totally dangerous.  Hope no one falls....   

Ha!  I love the circus.  This one is called Empyre.  5 generations of one family traveling and performing.  Performing and traveling.  Mostly to tiny audiences.  I could have photographed this place for a month straight...
