Clowning Around

This clown or mime or street performer - whatever you want to call him - was thrilling children and passersby on the South bank of the Thames in London near the London Eye.

An awesome capture Charles...the timing for the expression is superb!!

" 'ello, 'ello.. what's all this 'ere then?" This was the sort of stereotypical view that we had of our London police in the 1960s/1970 when the only equioment they used to carry was a whistle and a truncheon! Very different now. A good fun shot.

Great shot.. a walk on the south bank is a very relaxing and entertaining. Did you walk all the way to Tower Bridge?
This would be typical of one of our regular police officers in the 1970s Charles. Great spot.
Very great portrait, so funny!
Have a nice day.

Un de mes thèmes préférés les portraits , génial celui ci
Great shot Charles, sometimes these people are more talented than those we get on T.V.I often think.
A superb portrait !
He looks like he enjoys his work. well captured Charles
I love the full spirit in this shot! So full of life and expression, even when hiding behind the mask of a clown.
Great shot.
This candid portrait really tickles my funny bone, Charles. Well done!
