Weeeeeeeeeee!

My friends tricked me into jumping off a bridge yesterday.

We went up to Whistler for a little belated birthday celebration, and they didn’t tell me what we were doing until we got to the bridge. I guess that’s what friends are for!

Men in the Mexican town of San Juan de la Vega wield sledgehammers loaded with homemade explosives, in this series of intense photographs by American photographer Thomas Prior.

Part of an annual festival honouring St. John the Baptist, residents take part in the exploding sledgehammer ritual, dodging deadly shrapnel to commemorate a time when the town’s namesake was able to triumph over some gold-stealing bandits!
