'The Kiss'

Post by davechinn » Tue Mar 20, 2018 3:59 pm

While in New Orleans 2016. Minnie, spouses and I came across this character in a jester suit, so we took the opportunity to photograph him. After he had finished with us, he moved on to a more prosperous crowd, which is when I captured this set. However, the disgusted expression of possible disapproval is what I remember most. Since he acquired gratuity from this group, he was expecting the same from me for photographing him as with most characters at the French Quarter in New Orleans.

Cool series of the Jester (same one as in the Sailor Girl series). Love the expression in that last one.

Here he is with Dave's lovely wife Sharon, who is either amused by this character or ready for Dave and me to quit chasing those sailor girls and get her free of him.

Excellent capture Minnie !!! He did seem to linger around for quite awhile. Sharon does seem to be amused by this character, but for me, I still had issues thinking about a broken camera.

The last one in the set creeps me out, but I've haven't liked clowns since IT so I'll blame Stephen King for that. S-
