Jumping out and descending
Wind pressing, breath expending
Ground and tress into view
Floating down, two by two

The prompt of Theme Thursday this week is - Jump.  
The photographs are of tandem skydivers at the Cark Airfield.  Harnessed to an instructor the thrill of free-fall from 14,500 feet can be experienced for first time jumpers. Gift certificates available; don't buy me one. I was gasping for breath on a sudden (and mere) 400 foot drop via bosun's chair into a cave once.

Count me out. My ex-asshole used to jump out of perfectly good aircraft. Crazy he was.
