The Art of Axe Throwing by dide

The Art of Axe Throwing

So what do axemen and women do to entertain the crowd while there's a short lunch break? They have an axe throwing competition! They each have three throws at a wooden bullseye target. The one with the most points wins (top point tally is 15 - three bullseyes). This is Jesse having his turn while competing at Puhoi - he managed 12 points and won the event.
Lovely collage Dianne each image beautifully captures Jesse powerful axe throwing technique:)

Love the way your boy wears such white trousers....no scruffy wood man there Dianne!

@happypat when competing in NZ and Australia, white pants are compulsory. Don’t know why as they only look clean for the first 5 minutes! He soaks them in good old napisan to try to get them looking reasonable. They use lots of crc type spray on the saws and greasy lubricant on the axes....

@dide Must be a nightmare but he looks very smart.....no rules here as far as I know, they seem to be just dressed in jeans or shorts.

Well done, Jesse. Beautiful sequence of shots in this collage. I wouldn't stay any close to that axe in case it takes a wrong flight.
