The Southbank in London: a man is playing a tuba that breathes flames.Nothing else happens but it is a spectacle nonetheless. I photographed him a few weeks ago and, since I don’t have ready photographs of flowers oor of blooming trees to commemorate the occasion, this blazing tuba is how I am marking the first day of Spring 2016. Happy first day of Spring! May it be exciting… like a flame breathing tuba!
According to my understanding, the man with the tuba has been performing at the Southbank since 2014. That’s nearly two years – hopefully tourists and passers-by appreciate his act and reward it accordingly.
I offer you an edited version of the photograph in case the moody, black and white, filtered version strikes your fancy more.
