This is amazing. When I saw the first picture, I wondered how those flags stayed up in the air! :-) I've not seen anything like this. So colorful and the action must have been quite dramatic. Beautiful photographs, Karl!

This is something I got to see first hand when I was in Italy. We saw a group in Cortona and it was amazing. What a beautiful event!

Wonderful event Karl, to throw one flag, make it twirl and catch it must be hard enough but to do it with multiples, no way!!

I have never seen these guys at work: it must be spectacular!

The flag wavers appear to be highly skilled at this performance art. What a colorful pageant it makes, and you caught the flags at just the right moment. Well done.

Wow! This would have been great fun to see. The colorful flags reminded me that we are thinking about going to Siena next August for Palio. I was there a few years ago after Palio and the colorful banners were dazzling. But no one threw them . . .
