:blah: I love the weekends because there is always something interesting going on somewhere.Street performers (or buskers as they are called here) are a British tradition, and can be a fun way to earn a living for some.

i like these 2 shots. and also how you can see his crowd in the reflection on the windows. unfortunately we dont have street performers in this area (the scallies would probably steal all their cash if we did have any).

With a little help from his friends - in this case a buddy and two volunteers. (The grass skirt brigade volunteered for an earlier routine with knives1)

Nice story Suze - funny. I'd be a bit worried about falling backwards with all that glass around.

I really like the second one with the little bubba, a little soft but its nice. The juggler, reminds me of Covent Garden in the summer - lots of acts out showing off to the public. I wonder if the assistant gets to shoot him with the water gun even if there wasn't an accident :blah:.

Actually, Harj yes he did. There is a "safety zone" around the performers that was marked out with a rope laid on the ground. The audience was told thatthe assistant had order to "shoot" anyone breaching that perimeter. A couple of kids tested the boundaries, after that everyone stayed well clear :-). These guys were very professional about it all
