Going up in the world

Going up in the world
Yes, that person is going up in the world - but only for a fraction of a second more before the come-down.

This is the Tatton Catapult. The idea is that the cage goes up trailing an elastic rope down to the victim - sorry, I mean customer - fixed on the ground. Upon release they are catapulted upwards at speed (often emitting shrieking noises for some reason) before gravity comes into play for a bit before they are jerked up again. And they pay for the experience ;-))

Before you accuse me of allowing dust bunnies on my sensor, that spot near the feet happens to be a passing Swift - honestly.
