Jolie scène de rue. Le magasin "L'Occitane" est un magasin français.
Chris: The busker is enjoying a brief moment of television glory
Wow - I guess so to attract "big camera w/ boom" guy!
Chris: We very often get television crews in the streets of Bath these days Ellie. I have been interview twice by microphone-wielding people twice in the last month

I think it feels great to be famous even if it is only for 25 minutes in your life.... who knows what happens after this... miracles do happen, think Susan Boyle...
Chris: Quite right Astrid, she is the ultimate nothing-to-something person.
Alan will be salivating over that tripod, I bet, as long as someone else will carry it for him. HA!
Chris: I am always amazed that in this day & age television broadcast cameras are quite so big. Maybe the idea is to impress or intimidate people with the size of these things when we all know they could be easily shrunk to the size of home-grown camcorders without the loss of any quality..

I hope he paid him well
Chris: Not at all Lisl, the fame is compensation enough..

And you photgraphed him from the other side.

It's a ploy; the camera is actually focussed just to the left of the musician's shoulder on a Lesser-Spoted Normal Person just out of our sight.
Chris: Yes we occasionally get those in Bath, but not very often..
Une scène de rue très pittoresque !
Chris: Thank you kindly Claudine

2 Bathampton Fair?
[and other green stuff]"
Chris: And lettuce dance..
Blimey Tiff, I bet he couldn't believe his luck.
Chris: And now celebrity status awaits him
I hope he's getting paid for it!
Chris: I don't think so Tom..
His 15 minutes of fame?
Chris: That's just about it Mary
I can't believe your reply to Lisl, surely they must have given hin a few bob!
Chris: I don't think so Brian
I hope you dropped in a few coins for this fellow. Good street shot.
Chris: Oh yes I did Jacquelyn
A documentary about Julian Bream Part 1,,The busking years
Chris: Hehehe..
It's hard to tell where the camera ends and the cameraman begins...
Chris: I take your point Larry..
he looks like he has earned his celebrity busking after so many years... i'm sure that he gathered that the camera drew a crowd for him...
btw... great street scene Chris....petersmile
Chris: Much obliged to you Peter
