The silent magic of Grace and her crystal ball.
Union Square. NYC.
* * * * *
This must’ve been mesmerizing to watch. Great captures.
Thank you Terry, she was so mesmerising!
A fantastic series. Amazing ease as it appears on the picture. But that will not be the case. The first photo find sublime.
Her ease did indeed seem effortless and an absolute joy to watch!
Patti, the pictures mesmerize. I think you should look at bringing a video camera. The pictures are the essence but I would love to see it in motion. Grace is perfect, the hoodie everything. You rock.
Next time Tom! My camera does have the movie option but I keep forgetting about it . . .
You never cease to amaze and delight, Patti, with the images you capture!
Thank yo Annie, Grace did all the work!
Love Grace’s expressions – very natural, but theatrical at the same time. Wonderful captures, Patti!
She has put it all together so well hasn’t she! Thank you Richard!
Why strolling through the world searching and searching?
Visit Washington Square and the world will come to you!
Frizz, are you telling me I need to get out more? 🙂
Cool series … I remember watching a similar performer at a folk festival here a couple of years ago and finding myself quite transfixed 🙂
Imagine how calming it must be to be able to do this . . ..
a lovely series!
Thank you Pat!
beautiful. i saw a guy in paris doing this, seeing it move is even more amazing!
Amazing and so relaxing!
Patti – these are beautiful images – Grace has such an amazing face – you have captured brilliantly – the combination of child-like innocence and adult conjuring – magic !!
Thank you so much Veronica, she is certainly captivating!
Number 4, for me. Great! Would have been wonderful to witness in the flesh!
Perhaps we should all learn to do this, yoga for the mind and hands. Any filming I might have done here wouldn’t do her justice – camera shake! Hope you get to see it for yourself one day soon!
lots of fun to be had here!
that is really cool 🙂
She is very cool!
It’s almost hypnotic!
And ridiculously impressive (sadly, if I were in Grace’s shoes, I’d surly be standing in a pile of broken crystal)!
SiG, I can’t even keep my hands steady enough without anything in them, too much coffee I think! I have wondered how many balls fall to the floor, or the mattress. And how many bruised toes . . . ?
Lovely and simple. Thanks Patti.
My pleasure and thank you Gerard!
This is one of those things that always remind me of David Bowie in Labrynth when I see it.
A film of its time!
Amazing for you to capture the image on the ball Patti..it must be a pleasure to watch grace with her magic ball..
It was such a pleasure, thank you John!
I LOVE the reflections in the crystal ball! What a marvelous set Patti…almost spiritual 🙂
Madhu, she worked it with such style and . . . grace!
She’s beautiful, you captured her beautifully. Magically.
Thank you so much for your kind words!
(I love your name!)
Oh, this is magic. I find this very touching, Patti. The stunning small world and the sense of it being gently ‘juggled’. If only we were so gentle…
Fantastic images of a beautiful performance.
“If only we were so gentle . . . .” says so much, thank you Karen!
The ball sees all! Love the view it gives on the world as Grace allows it to flow around her hands. I love the expression of concentration on her face too! Nice sequence of shots 🙂
And when I think how easy it might have been to miss her, to keep walking past, but those who did stop were completely in her thrall!
A special lady indeed 🙂
I was looking for one of those crystal balls to use it in phtoography. I like the way it turns the world upside down.
Are they hard to get? I imagine you would have so much fun with shooting the world upside down.
I haven’t tried that hard, but I went to two different shops looking & asking for it.
Great! My son is a contact-juggler also.
What a talent! I would love to know more about it!
Wow, yes, such silence..gorgeous Patti..I am gushing in a row here, but I can’t help it 🙂 )
Cath, always wonderful to hear from you! 🙂
Good job !!!
Greetings, welcome and thank you so much HG! Lovely to see you here!
