World Book Day Singer (2/4)

“I’m a show boy” – he certainly is!

Second shot in this series of World Book Day Photos.

World Book Day Singer (1/4)

Cork celebrated World Book Day a little late but it didn’t stop the organisers putting on a great show!
This gentleman performed for the crowds outside the City Library and attempted to serenade many of the females who walked past.

This is what the street entertainer in yesterday’s picture was looking at! 🙂

Dancing in the street

All by himself, but he was enjoying the band that were playing a few feet away!

A Crowd Pleaser

More mono cycle madness on St. Patrick Street! This is near the end of his act. The crowd really enjoyed his show!

Buy a hot dog

I’d call them hot dogs simply because I’m ignorant of the German name used on the sign outside this stall. Whatever they’re called they were delicious!

All good stuff

Is chocolate bad and contain calories if it’s all organic and good and pure and sold in a homely fashion? Go on, you know you want some!
Yummy looking chocolate brownies for sale at a stall during the St Patrick’s Festival Cork 2006!

Fun on a monocycle

A street performer climbs onto his monocycle during the St Patrick’s Festival 2006.
I love the second picture here. It shows just how crazy he was as he got the crowd cheering and enthusing about his act.

Hangers on

Clothes hang unnoticed amid the crowds and stalls down Academy Street Cork during the St Patrick’s Festival on March 18th 2006!

Joe, the Devil and an Angel

Joe was a simple man. He is like most of us haunted by his own devils but also protected by an angel by his side.
In this street drama Joe was continually tempted by the devil, but then he found a small bird lying dead on the ground. What will he do? Leave it there for someone to walk on or a car to roll over or bury it with some dignity?
Thankfully Joe’s Angel gained the upper hand and with some ceremony Joe buried the poor bird in a nearby bin.
