Dream Weekend


Stilt walker.


With a "Cat in the Hat" hat. He was really good, made balloon animals and all sorts of things to keep the children happy.

This is another picture from the Dream Weekend charity fundraiser, for ~ Dreams Come True ~, which aims to make a child's dream come true every day, and they say "No dream is too big or too small for Dreams Come True" .

The weather was awful; it was cold, wet and windy, but it didn't completely dampen spirits and a lot of people were there enjoying themselves and giving generously.

The website for the weekend is here http://www.thedreamsweekend.com

I need a hat like that.
Divertida captura del hombre del gorro de colores. Sólo faltaría que su cara apareciese más clara! wink

Amused capture of the man of the cap of colors. It would only lack that its face appeared clearer! wink

I love this picture, it takes me back to my childhood when these types of images (people on stilts) really drove my imagination wild. smile
The show must go on, despite the inclement weather! I`m liking your people shots, Ellie! They are giving a nice flavour of the day. (:o)

Colourful fella, love it, nice capture, would love the name of the shop where he bought his 'jacket' grin (don't know the English word for it)
Nice and colourful capture. The man seems to be so concentrated
A hat to kill for ... good shot. richard.

Nice portrait with very shiny colours that make me feel alive !!!
Aren't they the greatest hats? One of my kids had one years ago. Seems like a fun event you've captured.

I do like this image, yes I do. I would like it in a boat, I would like it with a goat. I would like it here or there. I would like it anywhere.

Maybe on his days off he is a cool cat, but methinks he is just an impersonator. The crazy colors in front of the drab house work very well!
Nicely caught Ellie

Colourful indeed, but disappointed his face was in deep shadow - caused by the hat of course - and wish I could see what he was doing so wonder if composition would have been stronger if cropped at his elbows?
Having said that the picture brightened my day. Thanx!
