Street Performers

Have you ever seen someone playing piano in the middle of the sidewalk?

You don't get street performers in a small town like the one I live in. So we will have to rely on some pictures from or travels. Alas, no picture of the piano player in Seattle, but these stilt-walkers joined a charity walk in Tacoma a few years ago.
 (We will be walking again in Tacoma in the Light the Night Walk for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society on October 18. For more information abut LLS, blood cancers, and the Light the Night walk, or to sponsor us, look to the links in my left sidebar.)

In Edinburgh the street performers were traditional.
 In London on the Embankment and the Millennium Bridge, they were...
 unusual...
 active...
 creative...
 thoughtful...
 heartbreaking...
 balanced...
 (What can one say?) 
 touchable...
 melodic...and rhythmic.

 
But none of them would fit in my header space. So a look at a different type of street performance...
 These street paintings were in Edinburgh.

Some of my headbanger colleagues live in larger cities than I do, so perhaps they see this sort of thing every day.  Check them out in my sidebar on the right.

On second look, I noticed the tail on the little, green performer, so some kind of lizard?
