Frozen in Flight

These photos of ice skaters are all from the Life magazine archive. Interesting, how shots of skaters in mid-air are rare these days. That camera work is left to TV, while still photography seems to be more about capturing an emotional moment.

I'm completely absorbed in the Olympic figure skating this year. Women's long program is Thursday night!
