Greetings Earthlings. I come in peace. Na-Nu Na-Nu!

Norway woke up today to a new government...Hooray, I hear you shouting.
Erna Solberg is no Maggie Thatcher nor an Angela Merkel, but she just might make a good Prime Minister. However, Norway needs an outstanding PM, not a good one...oh, well.Sad

Back to the business of the day.
A street artist going about his trade in the city of York, unaware of the pesky photographer hanging over his shoulder.
I have converted this to b&w (I mention that for the benefit of the colour blind photographers)

Many thanks for all the recent interest in my humble efforts...it is appreciated.

Thanks for bothering.

Malc

I like your composition in this capture. The artists face just peaking into the frame. Makes a great mono conversion. Excellent photography Malc

A fine shot Malc,but not so sure about your news with Erna.
After the mess Maggie made here,it has added weight to my belief that a womans place is in the kitchen.
Even then,there are some women who make a right pigs ear of that too !!
And talking of politics,have you got a spare room ?
If we get independence next year I shall be packing my bags and moving to Norway.
(And sorry,but I cannot give you any money for rent.After working for 42 years and thrown on the scrap heap due to bad health,I am put in the same boat as these lazy b............ that have never worked in their life,and the government seems fit to pay us a pittance in benefits !!)

A familiar sight at the crossroads in York. You were a brave man photographing over his shoulder, Malc - although perhaps not so brave as the people who sit for him!
85mm focal length, a/the classic full frame portrait lens. And my Nikon 85mm is my favourite lens, full stop.
Like Mick, I too heard about Erna this morning. She is unlikely to be a match for Big Aggie from Leith Dockers' Club.
I doubt Big Aggie is much of a politician, but with all the Irn Bru she wouldn't need to be Blush
Regards
Bill

Excellent b&w, by the way Smile

No you wouldn't, Dan.
I actually have one of these street drawings, done in Strasbourg a few years back. I bring it out to scare the children on Halloween!Grin

Thought this must be a self-portrait when I saw the title Malc - although not sure what sort of artist GrinGrin
Very nicely done indeed Malc - love the little silhouetted bits of the artist - fab.

Well observed and captured. The subject is a mite too slender to be Big Aggie, but I'm sure that the artist will get his chance to portray her when Mikbee moves to Norway. He might need a bigger pad though!

It's a rare delight o watch a sketch artist at work, the crayons or felt tip pens just flow along the lines and suddenly there's a face, seems to appear quite effortlessly.
