A Sandy Serenade

London, England

The Thames river was low, so this guy made a couch out of sand and sang to the people walking by. His tip bucket filled up quickly and then he and his couch disappeared with the rising tide.

    I can't believe you took it by the river, you were in the right place at the right time (as usual)! ;-)

  7. What a very strange and interesting picture..Unusual, attractive, asking questions.
    The man behind the couch is (for me)scary , he seems like a threat to the scenery. A very rich and good picture!

  9. He no doubt deserved a full tip bucket for this "performance" and you deserve big kudos for this terrific shot. Bravo, James!

    Clever capture and presentation for this post. The image tell us feelings, I like the face expression of the guy ( artist ) and you are also writing poetry, bravo!

  11. Wow, an artist/musician, doing something unusual like that, and you were there to capture the moment. Fabulous, James! That couch was amazing.

  12. How Surreal. That is a great scene/moment this musician/sculptor created. I love the detail of the pillow and how it looks so soft and rumpled. The guy's face looks so blissful. All in contrast to the dark figure lurking in the background who is looking down, lost to the beauty of the moment. Thank goodness you were not lost to it. Perfect timing once again — it's a gift.

  13. Laissons les châteaux de sable et profitons d'un bon canapé!!!

    Sculpture éphémère toujours impressionnante.

  14. Voilà une photo totalement surréaliste et improbable... Belle chasse à l'insolite.

  15. Une idée originale, probablement inédite et pleine de bon sens.
    Pour couronner le tout une très belle photo pour immortaliser la scène.

  18. The brief anecdote that accompanies the photo is marvelous. Without the photo I would think you made it up. Wow, this is really great.

  19. Il fallait être un véritable artiste et dans sa tête et dans ses mains pour créer ce canapé en sable et aller jusqu'à jouer un air de musique. Wow, très belle photo pleine d'originalité.
