Buskers - Victoria Style

Living Statues

While visiting my son and his family in Victoria two weekends ago we did the 'touristy' tour of their downtown waterfront. There was a buskers festival on and a huge show and shine which meant the area around the harbour was packed with wall to wall to wall people.

I know we proud Nanaimoites like to think we should be able to get some of the cruise ship traffic away from Victoria, but I really think we are deluding ourselves if we think we are in the same ball park as our friends in the provincial captiol.

The two living statues pictured above, stand stone-still until some good soul makes a contribution to their collection can, which miraculously brings the 'statues' to life. They are both most convincing and I hope they made a great hourly rate, as standing perfectly still under a glaring midday's' sun did not strike me as a very easy way to buy groceries.
