Taken in Edinburgh - an Irish Street Artist who posed for me during his act,
which was improvised as he went along! His act involved a whip and a spud - what else for an Irishman!!!
During 'The Fringe' in August there are artists like this all over the city - not always
easy to get a good composition but lots of photographers use them for cut outs
for creative images. I did take out some b/g props in this one.
Many thanks for vs & cs for yesterday's There but for Fortune and special thank you to
Billy(williamsloan) for his precious User award.

That was most obliging of him, Kate, posing especially for you.
Now what the heck does he get up to (or down to as the case may be) with a whip and a spud?
Good shot of this street entertainer.
I hope I can manage through when the Festival is one as there are, just as you say, so many colourful characters which make excellent subjects.
Ronnie.

I wonder if the clickers with a fondness for naked women in similar poses will like this well captured, seductive pose?

Hopefully I will still manage my annual visit to the Fringe Kate.
Yes,the problem with ''messy'' BGs is a feature of the event.
Hard to get a shot with a clean BG.
Unless you have the luck of the Irish off course !!
Good clean shot.
Mick.
