Chineese Whispers meets The Pointless Thread!

It was a short time ago I posted this shot and was pleasantly suprised how the various conversations developed - in a completely unexpected way.

So I suggested we should post a random picture and see where the comments lead us - in a similar way to Hardgravity's excellent Another Pointless Thread. And it was suggested I post the first image. Then I got a tad distracted with my new Bigma and forgot!

So here is an image I took in Chester today:




There are plenty of street performers in Chester at the weekend, most are very skilled such as this gentleman who went on to balance a ball on his head via that 2 metre pole, and various other tricks. But (and I dont really know why) the people who are motionless pretending to be statues really annoy me!

Anyways, that's my first comment - anyone else want to continue and comment on anything they can find in this pic? Let's see where it goes...

I get the impression that the little boy is asking for his football back

Lol - having a back garden slap bang in the middle of Chester city centre was always going to be a problem for that kid!

It's no wonder the Italians didn't do well in the World Cup

What is the woman in the white blouse to the right of the photo looking at? Whatever it is it seems more interesting than the street performer!!
On a dark desert highway, cool Pentax K5 in my hand.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Surprised you weren`t accosted by security for photographing in a public place or accused of spying for the French Cafe down the road against the Italians.

I prefer the place in Lower Bridge Street anyway - beautiful ham & cheese toasties.........................

Actually I think Bob has PP'd the whole background. The guy in the hat is actually standing on Wembley Pitch talking to England Team. He saying 'this is football .. it goes in net .. otherwise sharp stick where sun don't shine'

No Mike, the chap is wearing a watch owned by the blue fleece.
