Budgie-smuggling

By mrswoolybill
What goes up must come down, and the juggler came down off his unicycle much quicker than he intended, due to the wet cobbles. I was standing behind him so I don't know whether he managed to activate the nipple tassels while he was aloft.
Colour, and a strategically tighter crop this time (b&w was included in a previous set). Title courtesy of Dave (bluesandtwos).
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Covent Garden is always a great place for photography, Moira. Lovely capture.

The suitcase is laughing at him.
Turning your title into a newspaper headline; "Bungling bicycling budgie-smuggler survives"

Malc, I think Norway is one hour ahead of GMT, meaning that your brain has had an hour longer than mine to wake up...

I do, Alfie, I do. I just don't know when we shall be there for anything like this again.

After such a mishap I feel it's important to keep one's pecker up.

Great shot. His boots are bigger than his smuggled budgie!

When I stood where you were standing for this shot, Moira, the performer singled me out for attention - on the grounds that I am bearded, wear an open-necked shirt with pens in the pocket, and could, at a distance, be taken for a Jeremy Corbyn lookalike...

Some people play with fire.

You're on form today, and Leo that's a wonderful cartoon. Thanks everyone.

My appearance was subtly different, but I didn't give him the chance, I disappeared immediately after this shot. Bill had been waiting for me round the corner for rather longer than he had expected or I had intended...

A great shot capturing the whole scene, Moira.
As soon as I saw the title I knew it was yours. Wink

Thanks Trev, that's what I like. I was the only spectator standing behind him, I'm guessing that he was quite surprised to see me. I had a hunch that it would be a good viewpoint...
Thanks everyone, and a very Silly Sunday to you.

Looks like he was about to ask you to hold his firesticks, Moira.
Good job you made a hasty retreat..Smile

The comments are adding to the Silly Sunday image. I got quite a few chuckles reading them. I don't know how he could do anything in those crazy big boots.
