The Magic Trick

By Rende
Last Wednesday we had another traffic safety event in our village, this time especially aimed at children. One of the attractions was provided by our neighbour who has won the Dutch conjuring championship several years in a row and has a wonderful act in which he performs his tricks in the guise of a vagrant, with a garbage container as his prop. (refreshing change from the obligatory tuxedo Wink )
Here are a couple of shots of the children's expressions as he does something clever with a piece of paper. The last one is the magician himself Smile

Children af that age always look so serious, don't they? But road safety is a serious matter.
Some delightful candids, Rende; excellent capture of expressions too.

V2 for the open mouth, V4 for the character. And all very well done, I've photographed a conjurer and it's difficult. They move fast...

You must have been very discreet. They seem oblivious to the fact that they're being photographed, which makes these shots endearing.
