the origin of my travel tumbling shot!
looking through my travel tumbling shot collection, i couldn't help but wonder.. what was my very first tumbling shot and where did the idea come from?
i tried as hard as i could to recall in my head where it all began. no luck. i decided to go through all my travel photos one by one to get to the bottom of this mystery. and then, i found it.
apparently, it all began during a trip to sydney, australia in late 2007.
i was with my sister and it was both our first time to go to sydney. so of course we made like tourists and posed in every possible beautiful site and famous building!
this is me by the sydney harbour and opera house trying to do a "fun" pose to make a memorable picture. what am i even doing?! i look so awkward! hahaha!
this is me in an attempt to do a tuck jump shot by the jenolan caves, a two-hour drive from sydney. well, not bad. pwede na rin naman. ayusin ko lang yung facial expression ko, hahaha.
and then.. there it was.. i found a series of photos of me and my sister in front of the acer arena - where snow patrol played a few days after and my sister luckily got to watch while i went back home to manila! boo! - goofing around!!!! one of the shots were my sister and i doing patawa cartwheels and handstands!!!! so this is where it all began! and it makes perfect sense. my official travel tumbling shot collection began in 2008, and this is what gave me the idea to start it all!
so there lies the origin of my tumbling shot! so happy to have discovered how it came to be. :) and again, cheers to more tumbling shots around the world, hopefully!
