photoblog image Buskers

Buskers

After several weeks of presenting various series I am dipping in to the "Miscellaneous Folder" for a while to present some images, both old and new, on a variety of subjects unless anything alse comes along in the meanwhile.

Way back in the very early 70's we had a holiday camping in Cornwall.  This is a scan from a colour slide I took at the time, probably on my trusty old Praktica with Ektachrome film.

I don't have any idea which of the little Cornish fishing villages this was but it seems to work better in B&W than the scanned colour image.

This is great.
All the elements of the street shot, the buskers, the person writing what could be a postcard, the lobster pots...
Classic stuff
Cheers

Very little in this excellent image, Brian, that places it 30 years or more into the past.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
This is great Brian, is the guy at the back writing a review?? grin
Brian Walbey: She, not he, Clare could well be. I think she just finishes the scene off.

There is nothing here to give away the fact that this was taken in the early 1970s - it all looks remarkably contemporary. A good candid shot.

Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Ingrid.
Well some things never change. I wonder what they are doing now.
Brian Walbey: Yes I wonder as well Chad.

Difficult to age this, Brian.. there is little to date it at first glance. Yoru original slide looks to be in good condition.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, I have always tried to keep my slides in a good condition, it has paid off with this as you say.
Those were the good old days. Nice reminiscent shot Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet, no doubt buskers still perform at your Cornish resorts from time to time.
Cool picture, i like the feeling , I have a black and white busker photo too, there is somthing about taking a photo of muscians, maybe its art capturing art!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ryan. Usually street performers are one type of person who doesn't mind having their photo taken.
Not dated at all Brian....and great in B&W..Nice one.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron.
Lovely capture Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Pamela, wish I could remember where I took it.
