easter weekend on the shores of loch lomond.

much fun was had walking and cycling around the loch, viewing the beautiful scottish landscape, and... spinning an hourglass shaped piece of plastic on a bit of string.

above is my first attempt at putting together a full length diabolo performance video. what do you think, any good? there's a larger version of the video with better sound at this link.

thanks to twilite for letting me use their song in this video. you can find out all about them here.

Nice shots! I had started to wonder who took all your photos/videos, is that them in photo three? :)

Re: the video, i was just waiting for it to drop in the water! Also, how do you not tie that string up in knots?

mjz (my Significant Other Half - in pic 3) shot the video on my mobile phone. I did drop the diabolo in some deep water one time and risked leg amputation after braving the freezing loch waters to fish it out again. as for tieing the string in knots - the trick is to try not to do that!
