I have free time this week, I'll get the worlds photos up.

Also, planning on some interesting new ideas for the photo contest :)

I find the photo of the tops resting between performances very suggestive and artistic.   Great eye Mark!

I am not sure if the worlds freestyle photos should be fair for the contest, but I am sure eager to see them!  And we all know that you could have great entries, Kyle.

I think the composition on this photo by Neff deserves a nomination for the contest:

The problem is that I don't want to give Chris a bigger head than he already has. How will he ever wear a hat again?

A very late entree but I decided to just take the photo yesterday.

Good idea! But I think it is a little out of focus.  You still have one more day to retake it . . .

(I didn't know that  Yomega made kendamas)

Sorry for the cell phone quality.
Yomega now also has a wooden kendama and a few other skill toys with the exception of a decent peg spintop.
Maybe Yomega might come out with a peg spintop.?..
