The things buskers do to make a living……….

(note:  A Busker is a street artist or musician)

I’ve often photographed this Busker and his 4 dummies, but these are the first images I’ve ever made which actually had enough contrast to see the details.  Must have been the right light on this overcast winter day.

I’ve often seen the short photographer in the foreground around the city centre with his long telephoto lens, but not sure I’ve even seen him with the lens to his eye.  I wonder if he’s a freelance photojournalist?

PS.  The real person in the concrete clothes is the man in the centre at the rear of the five dummies.  In the first photo of this post, his hand giving the ‘thumbs up’ sign is visible and actually moved when I stood watching.
