Framed Pair

Posted by
Viewfinder (Bradenton, FL, United States) on 16 June 2011 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

A street performer and a little tourist-boy join forces out there "Among the People of the Streets" in the French Quarter to form a living picture, complete with frame and all. As I look at the boy's expression and the performer's, I can't help wondering what was going on, on their side that frame. Were they role-playing "Mirror, mirror on the wall..." or imagining themselves as moving through some magical looking glass? I guess we'll never really know. But we can have some fun, too... guessing.

How wonderfully simple fun can be. And simple is the very best kind ! Love it.

Wonderful capture, Glenn ... I love his casual stance with his hand in his pocket.

This is a super street capture Glenn! Both of the characters' body language is priceless! Well seen and captured! ;-)

Maybe they are thinking, "We are looking at the people walking by, but they can't see us, because we are behind the looking glass..."

Well they make a cute pair whatever game they were playing. From the boys look, I would say they were posing for a photo by mom or dad. I see another little blond head there. The lady may be trying to entice that child to join them. You got a great photo out of the deal.

maybe the lady was trying to look evil with her makeup but I cant help but notice the kindness in her smile.This would be something the little boy remember!:)
