Mr. Spock's relative.

Jacob said...

Oh my, what big ears you have. Pointy, too!

This must be some sort of "art" installation, right?

San said...

I always wonder about these people. I think they are amazing. And yes I thought of Mr. Spock too.

Have a great new week.

Halcyon said...

Strange. I wonder if he gets many tips for this costume. Did you leave him a euro for the photo at least? ;)

Virginia said...

Perfect use of the Rule of Thirds. You are fast becoming my best resource for my photography classes JM.
wonderful shot.

Kate said...

I hope that this is not a self-portrait! Nice and trim, but, oh, those ears!

Sylvia K said...

What an intriguing statue!! My first thought was Mr. Spock, too! Interesting capture for the day, JM, you are good at finding those! Hope you have a lovely evening!

JM said...

@Halcyon: No, I left him €0.50! :-)))

Randy said...

Oh what people will do for some change. He should install a camera to capture people who view him.

Sharon said...

I've never see one of these guys dressed this way. They are usually all in silver when I see them here. Either way, it amazes me how they can stand so still for so long. It makes my joints feel stiff!

I admire these 'artists'. I always want to tickle them though.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

How fantastic JM, I also wonder how they manage to keep so still, it's a little creepy and totally freaks my daughter out haha!!

Irina said...

I was always afraid of them. But it's my problem, I also do not trust dolls..
If I repeat for the 200th time that you are the master of photography, will you beat me? because you are.

Woody said...

Interesting statue, but the bars on the window draw my eyes away from the subject.

London Caller said...

Ha, he's bit scary but funny!
The pavement is so distinctively Portuguese. :)

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

I bet if he jumped suddenly there would be a shriek from the bystanders! Great capture... love the wall color and the tiles as well!

Bises,

RedPat said...

Great composition! He looks pretty impressive.

Gine said...

Impressionnant et dérangeant ...

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

So is that one of those street buskers who just don't ever blink? Amazing. (I am a sucker for street performances -- Bill is always losing me as he walks ahead and I'm still there.

Jack said...

These performers are fun, but I don't understand who or what he is impersonating.

Dimple said...

I also thought of Spock!

Babzy said...

great performer , does he move when you give him money ? ;)

Steffe said...

I think he moved just now.

Art said...

Great composition, impressive!

ladyfi said...

You have a statue of an elf! Brilliant!

Leif Hagen said...

I see Martians have arrived in Lisbon! Run!
Kind vacation regards from Yellowstone National Park and Montana

Dina said...

Half a Euro for a half-Vulcan?

Joan Elizabeth said...

Eeek, there are aliens in the neighbourhood.

Rob and Mandy said...

Live long and prosper, friend.

T. Becque said...

This is so cool and yet somewhat creepy :)

VP said...

Funny picture, but I can't see how staying still in a costume can be art!
