Busking in Victoria Street, Cambridge CBD, New Zealand

Yes, staged!  Two lads, from Cambridge Middle School, happily playing competing solos outside Wright’s Bookshop in Victoria Street, Cambridge, New Zealand this morning – until I come along and ask them to stand together for this photograph. Performance is big here this weekend with Cambridge Autumn Festival – a full day tomorrow in and around Cambridge CBD. And we have the Juggling Olympics 2pm – 4pm, today, at Lake Karapiro Domain.

Mime; Empire and Duke Cambridge New Zealand

Mime artists Cambridge CBD Wednesday evening

They came into Cambridge CBD this evening, with the rain, as most everyone else was moving off home. Remaining in character so I could not extract any info as to their origin or purpose. A workshop in street mime methinks (with just the merest hint of the Ned Flanders)  – there did appear to be more than just a handful of them – rather than some grand conceptual statement – I may be wrong. Ambush marketing? With the Cambridge Autumn Festival due to kick off close by within the hour hmmm!

Coco and feijoas kitchen window sill

Coco and feijoas on the kitchen window sill

Two cats both tabbys – Tiger and Coco – patrol our section from their respective next door homes. Tiger is long haired Coco short, their colour and markings almost identical. They scrap they stalk each other – but tend to inhabit our space at different times of the day.
