Big Top was created for a round robin that I am in with participants from Colorado, California, and Washington. Each month for eleven months we create a spread for someone's journal. I have only been to a few circus performances in my life. My father took me to see the Ringling Brothers when I was twelve and, of course, I have been to Cirq du Soleil performances. While visiting China our tour was taken to a very sad run down circus. We asked to leave. I love the vintage clown photographs that I have been finding lately.
