A street artist performing in Trafalgar Square, London.
A tricky situation! The man sitting in the back is trying to discover the trick...

Hi Francis
A well exposed photo that is sharp as a pin, and the black and white rendition adds to the scene. There is plenty of interest, especially with the inclusion of the man sitting at the back.
If I had a criticism, it would be the bag at the bottom is too close to the edge.

Hello Francis, I too would like to know just how this is achieved.I have seen them performing and have to wonder at their ingenuity.
The inclusion of the bg man completes the shot, we know what the man is thinking!
The b/w was a good choice.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Francis
A pin-sharp Photo and it looks great in b/w. Added interest with the spectator in the bg. Nice one!
