It’s not a pyramid scheme – just a bloke wearing Egyptian headgear in New York’s Times Square, as he promotes the Broadway show “King Tut”. (Don’t you tut-tut me!)

Tut, of course, was Tutankhamun, the most famous of a pharaohs found in the Valley of the Kings.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/60 sec, ISO 800, focal length 125mm.

    That’s what you wear on a bad hair day! Love it, David; the image, the title, and your caption.

  • Nice observation, Bev – that headgear would conceal anything that could be described as a bad hair day! So glad you like the title too!

    Clearly he’s no shrinking violet (Broadway’s ‘next big thing’?)! Very striking work David, and as usual I love the title!

  • VERY kind of you, Georgie. I wonder if he’s a young understudy or aspiring actor who could well be the next big discovery on Broadway. Here’s wishing him luck from us both ……
