Out for a stroll along Thames Southbank close to Waterloo Bridge I noticed two young students using puppets to earn some money.
I had a chat with them - they seemed to enjoy the busking and were surrounded by inquisitive tourists. Here is an image of their work.

Having the legs in the background puts it all in perspective and adds humour to the image.

This is lovely, the little figures remind me of marionettes from a TV prog in the 60's! Hhmm that's going to bug me now until I think of it!
Love the inclusion of the legs to give scale and all the detail in the case. Well spotted and taken.

Lovely quirky shot, and clever use of shallow dof to push the human element into the background.

Agree the legs in the background do give a sense of scale, you have caught all the fine detail and done justice to the work of the students, definitely a quirky take on busking, Very well captured

Well spotted and captured - a lovely image. The street buskers in London (and other places I suppose) can be very interesting. I have taken some shots of some on unicycles, which I may upload at some stage. These students were very enterprising with their puppets, most unusual.
