A few from my recent trip to London...

I think this guy may be a member of the upper crust fallen on hard times.

South Kensington attracts a better class of busker.

I keep having visions of a dark street and the sound of a squeaking wheel.... I turn around and see this guy.

Brilliant shots! IMO the irony of the first makes it pure gold, a wonderful snap. The last is also one of my favorites, the expression on the sketcher's face seems very thought provoking.

I'm not a huge fan of "Carousel", the 6th. I personally think that the noise filter was unnecessary. The shot could've been just as interesting without.

Thanks for the feedback Evan. I guess with number 6 it's a case of horse for courses (groan).

Here's a similar shot without the noise effect....
