ABC WEDNESDAY "I" is for "innovative"


On a short trip to Krakow, Poland, I caught this fellow walking along on Grodzka Street downtown.  Not sure what these are called, but I imagine they take some getting used to.

See other I's on Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC WEDNESDAY.
 
Daily Haiku
With a smooth, strong gait
He strode by purposefully
Talking on his phone

And on a cell phone yet, hardly looking where he is going. I wouldn't make a single step on these.

So futuristic. I wonder if it's a new exercise trend?

I think one must have some sort of natural balance to use those things. I know that I would topple over in short order!

Those are just plain weird. What got me is that no one else is paying any attention to him and his foot attachments!

Terrific shot, Bibi!

And, of course, he's on the phone. Who isn't these days? :)

That scares me just to look at those things. Great haiku as well.

Here in the U.S., they're called jumping stilts and they're made by a couple of companies (average price is around $300!). Nicely captured, and great choice for the letter I --

I can't imagine walking on those. He must have good balance. - Margy

OMG! What are they called?
I am sure one can walk faster with those.
