Spotted this Purple Man (well, could hardly miss seeing him!) whilst strolling along Stonegate in York. These street entertainers seem quite popular in city centres, and this chap was quite happy to pose for photos with people. He was posed for most of the time as in the shot on the left and I waited until the background was clear of people to get the shot, but then he turned to his right briefly, and I grabbed the shot on the right before he turned back again. It's a pity that the chap in the background in the check shirt appears to have his head up the Purple Man's bum, but didn't get the chance to re-compose before he turned back again - thought it would be suitable for Silly Sunday though!
