The Striptease

I look forward to the sort of search results that title will bring where this blog is concerned. 

I have more today from Secret Circus, the busker act that concludes this series from Buskerfest. The two were in the midst of their act, working the audience, removing items of clothing as they went. Not everything, mind you- this was a family show. Though there is a burlesque show held during the festival with several buskers at an indoor location on one evening. And there's a group evening fire show held here that I missed- these two would have had a part in that.

Then it was time to light the torches for a little playing with fire.

I'm finishing with this shot- her expression is perfect. 


  1. Oh, I can just imagine the spammers and trolls your title may draw. This looks like it was a fun act.

  2. The crowds seemed to be enjoying it.


  3. ...quite the entertainment.

  4. Hello, looks like a fun show. Happy Monday, enjoy your day and the week ahead.

  5. There's really a lot of dance in this routine. It's fun to watch as they throw their clothes around.

  6. @Kay: the last few months, one single post from last year seems to be drawing a whole lot of spam. To the point where I wrote a note at the end telling the spammers to go to hell and that they were never going to be published, or even if they were, they'd get deleted. There's a spammer or two around lately who have made on-topic comments, but their links embedded in their comments lead to weird places, like anime or a casino of all things. I sent several such comments that got published back into the spam folder where they belong this morning.

    @Janis: they were!

    @Tom: it was!

    @Eileen: I enjoyed it.

    @Halcyon: Her Majesty's Secret Cirus has a good ring to it!

    @Christine: they were quite comedic about the pratfall!

    @Bill: they definitely were- though I noticed a couple of kids with hands over their eyes once the clothes started coming off!

  14. No wonder the audience is so intent on what they are doing.

  15. I bet that was a lot of fun to watch William 😀

  16. You were right about the headline - it was either your post or something about about yet another damn castle..!
