The folks on the bridge did not rain down feria when the show was over.
The crowds were large and the prestige was there, pero poco dinero.
p.s. Notice the dove pan used to produce the silly rabbit.
Some folks were not happy to see the way he held the rabbit, to animate it's feet.

Big crowds and little money are the difference between great performers and mediocre street performers. I have no doubt, that with a crowd that size, he is a great performer...

If the rabbit's feet are "animated," that means it's panicking because it's scared and/or hurting.
If I saw someone treating a rabbit that way, my money would have stayed in my wallet as well.

I like the shots mostly; great shots Devious!!! The pictures say a whole lot.
Great artistic talent you got there (assuming this is your work bro).

I imagine the folks on the bridge are not going to come down and put the dinero
in the hat, but what about the folks at his level? I often wonder why is that
crowds can be big; yet, the hats are small....did he educate his audience or
upset the crowd by handling of the rabbit ( I hope it wasn't harmed Smile )????

Thanks for the compliment Karlos! Black and white add lots of character to any shot
and make you look much more talented behind the camera than one actually may be.
The key is to take mucho shots and sometimes you get lucky and one of them turns out nice.

Folks don't get me wrong, he is an excellent entertainer. I just don't think the spot
he chose best served his needs. His hat pitch was certainly adequate. He never mentioned
his name to us.

If this were my pitch, I would recruit someone and pay them to stay up there with a
receptacle to accept tips during my close. It would have to be someone you trust of course.

The rabbit wasn't harmed and he seemed like a very kind and thoughtful fellow.

Unless you have a degree in vetenary medicine and personally examined that rabbit, you have no idea what shape it was in.
If we're going to use animals, we have a responsibility to them. Not only not to hurt them, but not to frighten them either.

But is goal to provide great entertainment or to maximize hat? Ideally I think it's both so would think selecting pitch location is something this pergoer needs to consider. Or think outside the box as suggested and get assistant to collect up on bridge
