The Crying Clown On Pender Street 8685e

This is a street portrait I have done years ago.

 

This is my archive picture taken in 2012 done with my old Fuji S3 Pro camera and 85mm F1.8 lens.

 

Have a great Wednesday!

 

I was walking on Pender Street. The clown in black carrying a cluster of black balloons quickly walked past me.

 

He came to a resting stop near a building. I came over to him and asked if I could take a picture of him with the shutter-clicking hand sign. I don’t know why I did that. May be I am used to the fact that clowns are supposed to communicate with non-spoken language.

 

He stood up and stepped forward to me. And suddenly he cried loudly. I took the shot.

 

Is it the legend that clowns are usually sad by themselves while they are supposed to make people laugh?

 

Have a happy Monday and great week coming!
