Nov 20, 2016 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Magic

Rome, Italy, taken on December 17, 2013

There seemed to be some magic on the streets of Rome and some passersby were indeed quite amazed at what man-in-orange did here but…I couldn’t have been the only to have seen through his trick immediately!? It wasn’t really that mysterious, though he did give me the evil eye as I was taking this photo secretly without dropping a coin or two in his can. Then I sneaked away, though I supposed he wouldn’t have been able to catch me even if he wanted to 😛

Oct 30, 2016 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Transmogrify [Reposted]

Madrid, Spain, taken on September 13, 2013

[Reposted because of image error in previous post.] Street performers often are able to transform themselves into art itself and their creativity is endless. In Madrid, Spain, I saw two men who seemed to be able to transmogrify themselves into life-size figurines made of clay. Could have fooled me! (Side note: I had always thought the word “transmogrification” was used only in Harry Potter, but apparently…not. Thanks, WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge 😉 )
