Living statues too

Last week one of my photo friends in New Zealand posted several photos of living statues—people who dress up in costume and hold a pose in a public place, often for amazingly long periods—that she had made while in Spain last year (here is a link to the post).  This immediately brought to mind a street artist whom I saw in Firenze (Florence) in August 2010.  She said she’d like to see mine, too, and I’m very happy to oblige.  It’s become cold here again and even colder weather is predicted, so let us reflect on summer days in sunny Italy…

  1. Love it!. The face of the boy looking at the artist is a winner. Both are fantastic shots!

    I take it…. opening ones eyes just as the boy gets ready to touch him would be classic… :-) Pic tells the whole story … nice catch Gary.

      Actually, he had his eyes slitted most of the time and when someone (especially a child) showed close interest, he would start to move his arms and head in ultra-slow motion, thereby increasing the dramatic effect several fold. It was great fun (and a bit of a meditation) to watch him apply his art.
