Strange animal


Don't we have weird creatures in Paris? I photographed it on the Quai des Bernardins, in the 5th arrondissement where it was performing together with its "master" as you can see in this photo. It was really amazing to see it acting like a real animal, even trying to steal food from people in the audience.

  1. This is quite an impressive photo! What a character! Ahh, I recognise the three strange flat building behind the... thing. There was a weird 'happening' on a barge on the same site a couple of years ago with strange arabic musicians hanging off barges as part of the Water Festival but that's another story. Nice one.

  2. It certainly can't be said that all of the art in Paris is archaic and fossilized. Bravo Sea Horse! Brava beautiful Sea Nymph!

  3. For me, these two photos of some sort of large blue crustacean and his minder speak volumes about the creative minds of we who inhabit the earth. Thanks so much for the photos.

    Given the sad passing of Marcel Marceau, can you give us a Paris photo that would provide a fitting epitaph?

  8. That's down at the end of the street where I used to live! I do like the street performers, especially the musicians who set up at street corners and play fantastic music.

    Happy first day of fall, everyone!

  9. I'll bet there were a lot of smiles and stares along the street from people passing by.

  11. Love the outfit! Hey, I notice this is Tomate's quartier and she hasn't left a comment here. Do you suppose that this creature is....umm...Tomate-is that you under that costume?

  12. Michael: Is it the part where Eric says he was "acting like a real animal" that made you think of me? Just curious ;)

    Otherwise, I take is as a compliment that you would think it's me on top. Actually, I am the bottom one, you can't see on this picture! :P

    (By the way, hard to load PDP this week-end for some reason; all I had on my screen was the green dots for most of the WE)

  13. LOL Tomate! I too had problems loading PDP. Maybe that's the reason for the small amount of comments.
