Buskers On Victoria Day

While out at Commissioner's Park on Victoria Day taking more tulip photos, I happened across these two aerial buskers. The women were certainly drawing attention.

  5. Wonder if they do this full time, where they learned? For sure, there is an interesting backstory!

  14. @VP: and with tulips in the background!

    @Halcyon: it was very impressive to watch.

    @Bill: it's quite a rarity.

    @Tomas: it is that too!

    @Marianne: the park was a very social area over the festival.

    @Janis: some buskers make a living doing this all over the place through the year.

    @Lowell: I have seen something similar done during our Busker's Festival, though I prefer this setting!

    @Luis: I thought so.

    @EG: it was pure chance seeing it going on, and I was glad to have the camera.

    @Gill: no, just these two, but there was a musical stage elsewhere in the park with musicians throughout the weekend.

    @Whisk: it's a lot of hard work.

    @Karl: thank you!

    @Sharon: they certainly do.

    @Jane and Chris: I agree!

    @Red: they certainly caught my attention.

    @Grace: the strength in particular for that struck me, along with the flexibility.

    1. I don't mind hard work but that kind, not so much for me. Looks like they're enjoying it though.

      Happy Weekend.

    @Cheryl: I was pleased to see it.

    @MB: it was something else to see!

    @Tex: I know I was.

    @Tamago: they did. I tried to photograph in a way that didn't involve the audience, who were off to the one side, but there was quite a crowd.

  20. Wow, how amazing! The strength and skill exhibited here is massive. Thanks, William. And thanks for letting me know about the photo size!

  26. If I tried that, I'd end up in a body cast!

  27. @Lynette: you're welcome!

    @Beth: I think they'd do well in arm wrestling.

    @Linda: it's a lot of fun to watch.

    @RedPat: I thought so!

    @Joy: definitely!

    @Ciel: I'm not quite that flexible myself!

    @Jan: it certainly was.

    @Norma: many would!

    @Gerald: they do.

    @Denise: that fits!

    ReplyDelete
  29. No that is something you don't see very often!

    @Mari: buskers here tend to draw in the crowds.

    @Linda: and yet beautiful at the same time!

    @Orvokki: very skilled.

    @Jennifer: it was.

  32. Wow quite agile folks and sure they attracted quite a group of onlookers...and maybe some spare change as well?

  33. I love the portable contraption. Also think acrobats are the best.
