Is anyone going to notice I'm juggling ?

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 29 October 2013 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Spotted in Bristol, I'm not sure if he was just doing it for his own amusement but no one seemed to be interested in watching him.
Happy Silly Tuesday

Canon EOS 60D 1/1000 second F/5.6 ISO 200 51 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

I think that's the guy at the top level of the child next to the spots.

There's a guy in London I've seen do that with grenades . . can clear a whole street.

@Ronnie 2¢: I'll bet he goes with a bang !

Mooie from Vancouver, Canada

I must admit, I'm more interested in the couple sitting on the steps... Happy ST

Only himself to blame, he isn't dressed like a juggler is he?

well at least he's keeping his balls in the air :)

@grouser: A challenge for most of us !

Even wearing plaid and camo-imagine that!

BiLL from Belfast, United Kingdom

As a retired teacher I know how he feels! Great shot, Doug :)

29 Oct 2013 10:52am

@BiLL: Thanks. Surely you could keep their interest with your juggling skills Bill :-)

Jason Politte from Conway, AR, United States

Great shot - love the way you stopped the balls in mid-flight.

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

It would appear to me that the little duffer at the top of the stairs was totally engrossed in the performance! Nicely captured Doug! ;-)

Great capture of the scene . Happy Silly Tuesday !

Brilliant shot! It appears everyone is ignoring him, poor thing. Great light and color in this capture.

A great shot about human behavior. Performers are nothing without an audience and this guy is proving to lack eye-catching skill. :-) Happy ST.

Rick from Toronto, Canada

Excellent street shot, and I hope the little fellow on the steps was at least watching the juggler.

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

The little guy and maybe his dad seem to be watching, but the mis-matched outfit hasn't won the attention of others ... perhaps he need brighter colors? Happy ST!

What makes this so captivating is that no one pays a bit of attention. Happy ST!

franz from Baden, Austria

very attentive, doug ... this is how i sometimes felt when i was still in the classroom ... ;-)))
(i wasn't juggling, though ...)

29 Oct 2013 7:05pm

@franz: Perhaps juggling should be a skill teachers develop, I know our governments believe most of us that work in public service should be able to do everything at once

Shiva from Berwick, Canada

Doug, isnt the little boy watching him and seemed to be interested. - Anyways if he likes to juggle and has fun ...... -Great shot - kindest regards Monika

I too am in Bristol today .. I love it for photographing ... Happy ST Doug.

@Kate: I hope you had plenty to fill your lens Kate, it's a great city for us photographers

Ted from South Wales, United Kingdom

This reminds me of a visit to an Italian city where many people sat on steps to enjoy the setting sun. Unfortunately, there was one sinister male who sat at the bottom of the steps and spent all his time looking up the steps, at those females sat above him. He wasn't juggling either. It wound me up at the time.
This is a happier image altogether.

Great title for a great moment captured.

Elaine Hancock from Rockville, United States

He looks like he is keeping the child on the steps amused but that's about it! Fantastic image! Well seen! I think what would have caught my attention were his clothes! Happy ST!

Ainsley from Derbyshire, United Kingdom

ha i was wondering where these green balls were coming in, my internet connection in the hotel room is really slow and as it was downloading it looked like the focus of mind, from the couple on the step was making them float. A nice image and I can clearly see no one is paying the poor fellow any attention now it's fully downloaded.

29 Oct 2013 9:52pm

@Ainsley: You're going to have to ask them to wind up the elastic band tighter ;-)

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

I think the "fashion police" might notice him! ;-) Happy Silly Tuesday! ;-))

Ok now THIS is definitely a SPOTLIGHT shot- SO much going on here...and the poor fellow just can't get an audience, can he? What a wonderful shot, Doug - this is really super!
