Just another day on the motorway

The Men with the Balloons

The Robot Man
The Tall American?

Surprisingly all the politicians left the scene in a hurry when suddenly a bunch of nearly naked young men took to the same stage. Dressed in white underwear and with gigantic white balls on their heads their sudden appearance made most of the crowd a little uneasy, especially when they walked off the stage to mingle with the now somewhat nervously laughing crowd. The second photo shows Robot Man. His real name in Mikael. He was a big hit with the kids (and everyone else). He has attended the Cirkus Cirkör school and has been working as an artist for a few years. More info about the Robot Man on his website. On the last photo you see what can only be described as a very tall American. He spoke American English and walked around asking people for money. Must be some American tradition! All in all just another day on the motorway...

Crazy and FUN! Do people know you now, when you are out and about with the camera?

I wonder what those silly guys were trying to say with their appearance? Allison will be happy with your "equality" of photography today ...

He sounds more like an American politician.

Gorgeous, playful.

The first photo is funny...I guess they were uncomfortable with half naked young men.

Happy theme day :)

I think all three of these are terrific. Surprising and fun.

I love the expressions of the little girls in the backround! They look horrified by the half naked men in white.

Now, I say those men are, in the eternal words of Steffe, "total babes!"

Gorgeous images, this was surely very funny to see... and to photograph!

Fab photos showing what was obviously a great and fun time. Love your commentary. Adore those young men with their balloons. Such good photography.

I love B Squared's comment! too right.

Once again, great images.

I love those guys with the giant condoms on their heads! No wonder some conservatives felt uncomfortable though :)

Steffe said...

Some do GUnn.

The woman that started Cirkus Cirkör was inspired by Cirque du Soleil Leif. Reading up on them at wikipedia it says that they are a "dramatic mix of circus arts and street entertainment".

Glad you approve of these photos Allison.

There are both left wing and right wing politicians here, equally uncomfortable though :)

I've had a condom on my head like that, back in my backpacking days. I remember a few warm nights at a tavern called Alexandros in the little village Pelekas on Corfu. Those were the days (and nights).
