If there is one thing I absolutely "LOVE" about London, then it is the street performances, and the professional way in which the artists go about conducting them. In a city that pretty much breaths Art with its endless museums, theatres and galleries, it is only but natural that art should spill out on the streets (though I do wish people had more time to pay heed).
A lone guitarist strumming away in a tube station to busy travellers, an artist painting on the banks of river thames, , a magician or an acrobat, people dressed as statues standing still making you wonder if they are really statues...........there is always something that will encourage you to pause and take a breather.
|A drone pipe (also known as Didgeridoo)
player - a regular at Canary Wharf underground. Amazingly trance- like music
comes from the aboriginal instrument - over 2000 ( some beleive more than
40,000) years old with its origins in ancient Australia.|
|Gee Charlie Chaplin !|

People who appreciated placed coins on their home country.
|Feeling shy with Mickey|
|On a corner in Camden Market, he bowled us s over with his singing ..there were loud claps, cheers as the crowd called for an encore !|
|Bubble blowers ...|
|Ice sculptor in Canary Warf|
|Magic in process !|
|African music ...super|
|Girija in a sword fight ...|
This is one thread I promise to revisited again and again as I post an ode to street performers that give this amazing city more character.
