Today I learned a new word. Like 'bokeh', it is something that I am so pleased that it is something that has actually been named properly.
Parkour (pron. IPA /paʁ.'kuʁ/, often abreviated to PK) is a physical discipline of French origin in which participants attempt to pass obstacles in the fastest and most direct manner possible, using skills such as jumping and climbing, or the more specific parkour moves. The obstacles can be anything in one's environment, so parkour is often seen practiced in urban areas because of many suitable public structures that are accessible to most people, such as buildings, rails and walls.
A traceur (/tʁa.'sœʁ/) is a participant of parkour.

I really like this idea. Not just in the sense that it would be pretty damn cool to see someone practicing this, but more in the sense that one could practice this mentally, especially going about as I do, out shooting. The philosphy behind it focuses more on the elegance with which one moves through the space, gracefully conquering all in his path. Can I do that with my eyes and my brain, move like fluid. Wouldn't that be nice?

Or perhaps just be able to fake it in a very convincing manner.
