Photographer's Note

Today, two more paragraphs from the same article in Wikipedia:

Some people manage only pocket change from busking, while others can amass substantial incomes. An act that might make money at one place and time may not work at all in another setting. A busker's income depends on many conditions, including the composition of the audience, the type and quality of the performance, and the time of day. Location can be the key, and competition from other entertainers can also play a role, both positively and negatively.
Busking can be the bottom rung of the entertainment industry, and some of the most famous groups and superstars started their careers as buskers. Examples include the Blue Man Group, Cirque Du Soleil, Stomp, Bob Hope, George Burns, Rod Stewart, Dolly Parton, Eric Clapton, Simon and Garfunkel, Jimmy Buffett, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Pierce Brosnan and Joni Mitchell.

This photo was taken in the Brisbane Queen Street Mall at around lunch time on a week day. The performer, an acrobat, went around the audience with is hat and made a quite good tax free revenue for a ten minutes exhibition. As I also contributed to his hat, I can assure you that several notes (A$5 and A$10) were given to him that day.

In WS I am posting another picture, this time during his performance.
