The prompt this week was a photograph:
He stood, head bowed, waiting for his cue. It was a chilly day despite the sunshine and he could feel his feet getting cold. Trying not to move a muscle, he wiggled his toes in his shoes, hidden deep beneath his cowl.
A child approached, and put some money in the box placed in front of him. To show his appreciation he bowed elaborately, making the most of the opportunity to have a stretch.
He returned slowly to his original position, head down, waiting for another tourist to drop some money to the human statue, willing the wait to be short.
