AMUSEURS PUBLICS ET ARTISTES DE RUE - 1

When crossing the Passerelle St Louis we came across this very earnest young man juggling a number of delicate glass spheres which he slowly rolled along his arms and shoulders in time to the classical music being played.  A large crowd had gathered, mesmerised by his skill and artistry.



Then we noticed that a portion of the crowd was distracted by a second artist who was pretending to juggle, not glass spheres, but the bald head of the spectator in front of him.

The unfortunate spectator was completely unaware of what was happening behind him.





Two simultaneous shows - one skillful and artistic, the other opportunistic and amusing!
