As she spun around on her little turntable she was cracking jokes. This pose was almost unwatchable.

:-oThat is sooo wrong!!!
I saw her at the Quay the weekend before last. One flexible lady.
Yeah,what a way to earn a living; but she clearly enjoys it and the performance is good fun.
Thank you Antanas, it was hard to capture the joy on her face because she was spinning around on the turntable and I had to take many shots to end up with her face. Thank you for commenting.
I can’t imagine how you captured this! She’s amazing and you brought her to life, here, with precision and sooooo much energy!::applause::
I’m glad that her energy and personality comes through in the shot. I had to take heaps of shots to catch the smile and the shear enjoyment of what she does, her trade. She’s funny, clever and very professional. I strive to catch these things in portraits, but rarely do. The trying is fun though.
Very nice image! Congratulations!
Thank you for noticing. I’m off to your site to marvel at the sand sculptures again.
haha I’ve seen her performing at Circular Quay in Sydney too. Thanks for the faves btw!
My pleasure, you have some great images. I particularly like your Europe shots.
mmm very disconcerting, but an excellent capture indeed!
Hi Gwynne, don’t know how I missed replying to your comment. Thank you. She was so much fun, a real performer. This pose made me squirm.
Hillarious…what a crazy girl…in the funniest sense that is…great shot!
She is a crazy girl really – what is so refreshing is the fact that she really appears to be having more fun than the audience
Amazing candid image!!!
Thanks Laurie, I was the only person taking photos, I don’t know why – everything she did was eye-popping.
