Great Royaldevon 2017-12-19 7:47

Ha! Ha! Gert, it was a memorable moment to be the centre of attention but not not so effective that it made you deviate from being a journalist to being a street performer!
When you look at the individuals who are baring their chests, they don't look particularly well fed, probably as a direct result of war conditions.

AS you note, they had probably never seen a camera before so you would be a like a modern day magician.
Just imagine how they would have reacted had digital cameras been available then!

It's a great journalistic shot of a time immediately after a war.
Surprisingly, there isn't a single female in shot!.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Default To Royaldevon: deviate

Thank you Bev,
This was actually years before I became a journalist. My first serious career was as a street performer. I had plenty of opportunities to make people gasp at my Western tricks in Asia and the Middle East before I decided to do something more profitable.
Kind regards,
Gert

Default Street Performer

Wow, Gert, that was a surprise!
Did you ever perform in London?
I have seen some talented people at Covent Garden!

Best wishes Bev 😄
