The Ax Thrower

This is a picture I took at the Renaissance Festival.

The guy is throwing an ax in a pretty serious way.

While everyone else was doing it with two hands over their head, this dude was pitching it up like a baseball.

He not only looked the authentic part of the middle ages, but he played it well too–and man, you would not want to get in front of his ax throw.

Wonder if he gives lessons? 😉
