Seen in the Provencal city of Arles, one of several groups of visiting South American street musicians out to do their best to relieve the tourists of their cash.
Arles is a city and commune in the south of France, in the Bouches-du-Rhône department, of which it is a subprefecture. It is located in the former province of Provence.

Nicely spotted the street vendors, one in his Indian costume which is an eyes catching element on picture.
Fine sharpness and colorful display, also I see a photo shop facade there.

Everyone want a little bit euros earn, this is certainly a way.
The seller looks to the camera and waits for his money.
These type images see we not everyday on TE, excellent done.
You chose a very well angle, this gives depth and perspective.
Excellent composition, nice captured.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice week,

These Inka players are everywhere. There was time that in Warsaw one could see four groups at the same time. And how amazed I was not to see them in Peru or Bolivia! I like this music so maybe I would be also caught in this trap. besides the disks with music I also see here some zamponias. I like the sound of them. Very nicely composed shot.

a nice shot of an everyday occurrence probably happening in cities all over the world. Love the originality of this one though, and the amazing mix of colours and ethnicity. Wonderful.
Have a great week - Brian.

of course everyone has the right to earn money and make a living in the way they seem fit, but surely these are some of the touristy type of traps that turn me off.
its only my opinion, but i find the items sold in such places very cheap and actually ruin part of the experience, but the experience is really what YOU make of it anyways - so i try not to let it bother me.
interesting post for TE, as i'm sure most of us know exactly what this is :)

J'ignore pourquoi, mais aussitôt que l'on jette un regard vers ces présentoirs de fortune, on se sent happé par la curiosité et on s'approche un peu. Aussitôt notre cas est réglé.Une belle scène de rue.

a nice daily life scene... Nice to see the street musicians in action. The addition of the listeners in this shot is nice, it made it lively. Excellent one. Tfs.

Excellent candid shot of this lively street scene. The only issue I have is with the asphalt. When setting the WB on shadow, the colour of the asphalt will turn more grey, what should be its colour tone. Photographs with shadow normally will give grey to black tones a blueish hint. Otherwise good photo job

Hi Stephen. What an original title. However, the emphasis should be on the female tourists. The photo pleases me, because it is alive and very realistic.

Relieving the tourists of their cash.......this makes me laugh and rolling on the bed.
In India, we do have these kind of street magicians, who know very well the amount of currency in your pocket and how to mark those bills with their name.
the gentleman in the hen-dress is the brain behind all this pomp and show, I love watching him playing the flute.
This shot is great in all respects.
Thanks a ton for the smiles on my face this evening, Stephen.
