Flogging a Dead Horse

London sure knows how to throw a good party. The Thames Festival is a 2 day party marking the end of summer. We couldn't have wished for better weather with sun at last! Tango to Lithuania folk dance, boat races, street theatre, music, movie making, world food and drink was all part of the fun.

Flogging a dead horse, performed by Paka and his horse was brilliant. A mechanical horse made out of junk and a clown who thrills, scares and disgusts with this amazing act.

Great shot! That reminds me of a daily show with lots of performers and metal creatures on EXPO98, 10 years ago in Lisbon.

This reminds me of Olivier's bestiary over on the Evry Daily Photo. It looks thrilling.

Wow, that's brilliant. I really wanted to stop by the festival but ended up queuing all day Saturday for the Last Night of the Proms (which was pretty spectacular itself). Looks like I missed some great events, though. Wonderful picture!
