Love, By Any Other Name...
It was up by Montmartre, this one, nice image, regular guy, good to see him still in touch with his roots... more or less ! ;-)
Don't let mimes or 'living statues' fool you... they're devilishly difficult to photograph! They're a bit like kids and animals - always ready to move or jig about just when you're not expecting it.
The thing is to watch them. See what their behavour is. Notice how often they play with the kids by suddenly opening their eyes to scare them and so on. Patience is one of the photographer's key tools, unfortunately, just waiting for the moment, and here's an instance where it really pays off, even if it's just to get them standing (or sitting) completely still !
