On the Run!!!
This guy was actually a busker standing in this pose in the Piazza Navona, Rome .... I honestly don't know how much starch he must've used on his clothes and tie etc ... but it sure would of been plenty. And to keep that smile on his face - boy he earnt his money!!!

WOW! I was just getting ready to say what a great shot on a windy day, when I read your narrative...NOW...this has turned into not only a fantastic shot, but one of 'awe' for the reality of it all! It's amazing how he was able to perfect that look of wind blowing! SUPERB find!

What a great find, Renee! I have never been a big fan of starch clothes, so this bloke is sure earning his living the hard way!

I love this! I lived in Madrid, Spain last year and there were a couple guys doing the caught-in-the-wind thing. They always made the most money and got the biggest crowds! Fabulous pic.

Hi Renee, I did a double take when I saw your photo of this busker and wanted to let you know he is on the same beat but wearing a different shirt and tie.....I don't know for sure when you took the photo but it was uploaded Sep. 28, 2006. I saw him Oct. 2007 and snapped a couple of good shots of him and he certainly was a crowd pleaser. Obviously very popular and must be making good coin or else he would have moved on......thanks for sharing with everyone.....I was looking through your gallery and it looks like we were on the same itinerary...lol great shots you captured....
