One of this years (2012) aerial Balance of Power photos. This one features Wendy Lindquist. Actually they all do.
This image completely destroys all pre-conceived notions about pole dancing. This is not a stripper...this is an athlete, a dancer, a performer, and this...this is an amazing and hard-earned physique that demonstrates what we as a human race are capable of achieving.

    Fantastic shot, Monte. I also like your comments about pole dancing. I have seen some real pros perform, both female and male. It is an incredible art, and the feats of strength they exhibit are amazing. You've done a great job showing that here.

    Barbara, thank you so much!
    It truly is among the most intense and completely physical
    Activities... Amazing to shoot! I have Wendy to work with, so I'm spoiled there;)
    I think it's truly a shame that the arts get no media support, while violent sports are taking in record amounts of money...hmmmm... New project.
