I have added a photo album at the leff with images from the Busker Festival.
On one of the images, I thank Victor Mai, a man I met at the Busker festival. He was just taking pictures of me working and I asked him to email me a few, and he did! The kindness of strangers is alive and well. It seemed to be a good event to come with a good camera and looking for photo-action.
All the other images that I am in (and could not possibly have photographed) were taken by Jason. He also shot this cool video:
Here's is a video of what the Busker 'competition' was like. How can a lowly street painter compete with fire breathing jugglers? We even caught one Busker who juggled kinves, blindfolded on an 8' unicycle!!!! How absurd!!! Everyone keeps trying to out-do the next and the next. I think I'm going to stick with adding colour and liveliness to the streets! I don't want to handle weapons or combustables. I had a lot of fun making the festival more colourful and enjoyed the experience.
