I really don't like to look down on people. I love to look down on people, professionally, at least, because that means I get to go up to high places like a catwalk high above the floor at the Sovereign Bank Arena in order to photograph a rehearsal of Cirque du Soleil-Saltimbanco, which spent a few days in Trenton.

When you see these performers in full, colorful costume with the fancy lighting, what they do seems unreal, but when you see them in street clothes and in regular lighting, it seems even more unreal because one is forced to face that they are actual people doing these amazing feats of balance and strength.
