photo stories - solve sundsbo

A tightrope walker.  I recently saw one while visiting Niagara Falls - an act tinted with magic.
The man who recently crossed the falls on tightrope got his start with the Flying Wallendas,
a group of circus performers spanning seven generations.  What an interesting back story.
Think of all the other characters found at a circus - bearded lady, the ones that lay on beds of
nails, the contortionists, lion tamers, illusionists.  What about some obscure ones, new ones
from our own imaginations?  What are their histories and futures?  What might they dare to do?
