A Line of Calves

Lightning post today. Exceedingly tired. Second guessing of post title and caption abound as I question my own judgement of words. That’s parabolic, as in “parabolas”… these nearly mathematically defined shapes of brute (graceful) power. Good night fair world, more of this greatness come Thursday.

One comment on “Parabolic Muscle”

  1. Hi Gustav,

    I really like this one, very real. From the hanging thread from the cut-off sweats to the [nicely out-of-focus] leopard print socks 🙂

    As for the caption, when I saw it, the first thing that struck me was “Sinusoidal gastrocnemii” but I am afraid that may sail over the heads of too many. However, playing with parabolic is also clever since it seems that these legs could be protagonists in a dance parable of sorts. Good luck with this one! Thanks for the nice image!

    Cheers,
    Dustin
