    Buskerfest is a lot of fun. I've been to Ottawa's Buskerfest a couple of times and Quebec City has good street performers out there every day and evening. Great entertainment - thanks for sharing!

    Have you thought about shooting some video of the buskers? A big part of the performance is their dialogue with the crowd.

    I really like street festivals.

    Anyone who has given any thought to trying to learn street photography should go to a street festival. Charlotte has several during the year and I try to get to as many as I can' We had a Buskerfest here, but I didn't find out about it until I read about it in the paper, and that was after the event.

    yeah, it's a like a workshop. in fact, I saw an elderly gentleman with an SLR and 2 DSLRs around his neck teaching a couple how the "Sunny 16"

    Funny you asked! One of the performers were looking for a video cam as he performed his finale.

    I agree with the dialogue as being a big part of the performance. I guess we just have to be there! :wink:
