After I was knocked out of the poker tournament, I wandered over to the French Quarter. They have mimes that do their thing for tips. Here are two of them:
The guy below just stood there with his front foot up in the air. How can they stand like that for long periods? When I went over and dropped $2 in his tip bucket, he said thank you, but I was watching and his lips didn't move. Maybe he's not a mime, but is called something else?
The image below shows what the mime calls a "Living Statue." I thought she was a female, but it was a he. You can see two tourists checking him out.
When I tried to get a close-up of the statue, some (nitty) old guy jumped in the photo.
First two images by MOJO with my P&S. The young lady in photo No. 2 took the third one.
