Cowboy Dancer, in Midtown

Cowboy dancer, NYC
Photo by myself, somewhere in Midtown.

A man in a cowboy hat and face paint was available to perform, for a small fee.

His sign reads, 'Does money make me dance? Or is this the Twilite Zone?'

I have mixed feelings about this one, I wonder about the necessity he has to do this. Have a good Sunday!

Only in New York. He is quite fashionable. The picture has a desperate, sad quality. Are you ready for another week?

What an interesting fellow. Dashing, but somehow disturbing. Does he dance well?

oh dear. it *is* a sad commentary on our time. though who knows, he may be quite pleased with himself for coming up with a way to earn some income without having to work for The Man. Maybe the last laugh is on us!

Dance - when feet become thoughts.
One can only hope that his thoughts will become bright and fit into life, even though his shoes seem to be a bit tight.
What an oustanding photography.

Please have a wonderful start into the new week.
