SundayStills - silhouette

This week's challenge was "silhouettes" and, of course, I left it to the last minute. (Oh right, I had no computer until Friday) I thought about using a sunrise photo (of which I have many) but, yesterday I spent the afternoon and evening at Buskerfest.

This is the set up shot of the juggler on top of the pole


juggling knives


Buskers have exhaustive energy.

  10. Thanks, everyone. It was fun to watch (and Frogdancer this guy was Australian!) The people holding the ropes of the pole were all dragged from the crowd - a busker must be very trusting of his volunteers.

  12. I think the sky helped make it cool, Jazz. And I was amazed how well this one and another turned out, FarSide, considering I couldn't see well, even with the sun behind the clouds!

  16. Yay...more coolness! And I think he must be a very clever Aussie. According to the guide of performers he was on Australia's Got Talent.
