NotsuoH variety
6 months ago

a favorite dancer was doing a gig to "get in touch with my inner freak" as she put it

this new club is located in a former haberdasher shop in Houston's revitalizing downtown

they put on a variety/vaudeville/burlesque show with mainly refugees from the Texas Renaissance Festival, which closed for the winter

here are some of the photographs I took using the 75 Summilux, mostly wide open, on the M9

this magician engaged some members of the audience, but I think such fine sleight of hand magic works better with a crowd gathered around

this next act was said to be inspired by India's fakirs

don't recall if he was pushing or pulling

after his effort with the fork, EightBall tried his hand at darts in an act inspired by schadenfreude

this man claims to be the world's greatest sword swallower & who am I to argue

his act was elegant & amazing to see live

I regret I just missed focus on this one, but I loves the moment
