I took this photo at SeaWorld in Orlando. They have a pair of swimmers in a tank with glass walls. I did not set this up, the little girl was standing there as I came around a corner. I liked it because the little girl does not seem to know what to make of the man hanging upside down in front of her. To a young child, something like this would defy physics as she understands them.
