Busker performs at a bus-stop near a suburban shopping mall in Bangkok where, he hopes, night-shoppers might have a little generosity as they return home.

Funny ! I wonder wich skin disease can do that....smile
Ray: All the cosmetics in Thailand are focused on offering skin whitening to users, Zeb...it could be this guy used a bit too much cream...

We get this sort of thing in Bath - but in the daytime Ray: I expect they do quite well sometimes
Ray: I suppose in Bath they don't venture out at night lest staggering drunks think they are a flower garden and pee on them...

l hope hes a clown otherwise hes a little confused
Ray: I think we are all clowns and a little confused, Zed. Some of us don't dress this way, though.
That's what happened to Michael Jackson then?
Ray: Michael has been eating big serves of rice...
S/he scares me.
Ray: he was non-threatening, Mary, but his "music" was a bit off to my western ears.
Wondeful colours Ray!
Ray: very colourful! Thanks, Richard.
Lol at Bill, he does look a bit like this. Nicely caught close up Ray.
Ray: Thanks, Brian. His costume attracted my camera.

We know this sort of 'thing' too, especially East-European persons are performing their music on streets or in front of big shops- yes, Chris is right, and sometimes they earn so much money that they can live modestly- but it is a hard life and job! I like the facial expression and the costume of the Busker, it is a pity that I cannot see his mouth! Do you like this music?
LOL at Bill!
Ray: Thanks for your remarks, Philine.
I thought his music was strange and unmusical, but I was entertained by his elaborate costume.

A heck of a lot of effort has gone into that make up. Do buskers like him make a lot of money?
Ray: I think buskers in Bangkok are seen as beggars who are saving face by entertaining...thus earning the money they want from you.

I doubt many buskers in Bangkok drive mercs.
This is La Toya!
Scary stuff.
Great colours!
Cheers
Rob
Ray: Shot this perhaps 100metres from your Bangkok house, Rob.
Looks weird
Ray: Sounded similar, too.
