Performance Artist @ Union Square

This photo was taken at Union Square in Manhattan. The girl in purple was balancing a ball on her palm while the girl in yellow was spinning some sort of balls with flags on them creating this interesting image. Performance artists usually congregate here to practice their art and meet like-minded people to hang out during the weekends.

So do you have any performance talent?

Sounds like a wonderful place to hang out in when you're bored!

Hi Ming, the girl in yellow is a very effective attention-getter! The crowd around is also interesting in their observing/non-observing postures. Have a great day (yes that was me in my post) :)

The answer is NO, but I'm so happy to find that others have! :-)

Ming, you are always out and about. Good for you :)
I have very little performance talents as I have 2 left feet ;)
But I have more in the area of painting, quilting, art in books and on paper type stuff.

Have a great weekend!

I love to come to Union Square and see who's doing what to entertain the rest of us. Like the way you also caught the crowd being typical blasé New Yorkers.
My performance talent? I do a pretty mean hog call (don't ask)!

I've heard of Wholefoods, but had never almost-seen it until today! Thanks. Won't mind having a virtual browse inside, hint hint... If they let you...
