Felipe Reyes hand balancing and quote from Mithun Chakraborty, (c) Carole Edrich 2011

Mithun Chakraborty, born Gouranga Chakraborty, has at various times been an Indian film actor (he has been in the amazing number of 350 films), singer, producer, writer, social worker, entrepreneur and an Upper House Member of the Indian Parliament. The full quote is; “Actors are born, good actors are trained. Dancers are born, good dancers are trained.”

I took this photograph of Felipe Reyez at Stevens Garage in Wanstead. Felipe is a professional circus acrobat whose talents include hand-balancing on stilts.
