Escapades

Magic Brian of New York was another act this year at Buskerfest. I came across him being tightened up into a straightjacket by two volunteers, one of whom didn't want to grab "that strap between his legs".


Here's another look at the Spring Action trampoline troupe in action.


Finally, here are two buskers in conversation between sets. Pancho Libre, who I showed you at the beginning of this series, had finished his set at this spot. He was chatting with the busker whose work I'll be showing you in the next two days to complete the series.

  6. I noticed that there are a lot of people watching these various events. Can't blame them...it's fascinating. And I'll bet that guy got out of that straight jacket right away!

  7. The guy in the straitjacket reminds me of Mel Gibson doing his straitjacket escape in Lethal Weapon 2!

  15. Such fun! I wouldn't like being tied up in a straight jacket though. That gave me the heebjeebies just to look at it. Too many horror movies in my youth probably ;) Great photos William and always enjoyable to see what is going on in your beautiful city.
