This street performance creates a question...how can it be?
An illusion which for some time was a mystery, but now it's very common and seen anywhere.
This is my entry to the Theme which I consider as a Classic!

Hello Francis, funnily enough I saw something very similar in Verona too.
You had perfect lighting that shows all the colourful details of the artists.
The presence of the spectators adds to the whole.
Excellent entry to the theme.
Regards Jean.

This is one illusion that is always intriguing to me. I'm sure that there's an explanation to this phenomena. Good contribution to Friday's theme. Well done, tfs.

Love your entry!It's THE perfect fit.One has to admire the creativity of this act.All the best Otto.

Hi Francis
Beautiful street scene showing an interesting performance.
And if they really do it with the power of their minds?


Hi francis, great detail and pov and lighting. This is a mind boggling illusion. I have seen it done here in Thailand with only 1 person in the act and the gold shaft i guess connected to some hidden blanncing weight hidden on the ground. But in you casd its been held by another person sitting on the ground, which makes it more puzzling.

Fine street scene,good POV for details.TFS:)
