The Magical Crystal Ball


Here is a young man with a great skill. There is no question this magic must have taken countless hours to perfect but this young man can move both his hands around the magical crystal ball and the ball will stay suspended in one spot in space. Truly mesmerizing.

Girl Knitting


This young girl in the beret was knitting something in Hyde Park during lunchtime.

I associate knitting with something my grandmother did. As a child I had countless sweaters and winter scarf knitted by her. Usually in a mix of blue and white threads.

These days knitting is a not an activity one sees often. Sometimes there will be a lady on try train ustilising the time to knit something up. It is a skill that no longer saves money as the cheap imports from developing countries undercut the need of making garments yourself. And yet, I hope that many kids in generations to come will have nice memories as I have of a sweater knitted by their close ones.
