After last night's successful work event – the Most Interesting Awards – I was reminded that I had taken more than just the standard portrait photos of the winners from the previous show we held at the Ricoh Arena. This shot is another from that show, taken at a similar time to this.

The trapeze artist, at the point this was taken, had just plummeted toward the ground, unfolding from her red material as she fell. All quite intentional and very spectacular!

She reminded me of the the Marion, the trapeze artist, in the Wim Wender's film, Wings of Desire, hence the title.
