Last night I had a dream... Swept off by tiredness I fell asleep on a keyboard to land in a bus station. Since my childhood, I have always been in awe of clowns, fire eaters, funambulists, magicians and lion tamers. Should I say it was a strange dream? At a bus station named CIRCUS STATION, passengers had the choice to travel free by bus if they succeed to perform one short improvised show just to please the bus driver. The man was rarely in a good mud, irascible and his frightening face did not help to gain the confidence of the children. Most of the time, they were scared to get on the bus. Relatives were angry but had no pressure tactic to persuade the driver to moderate his behaviour with children waiting at the bus station sometimes by windy and rainy day. Where there is a problem there is a solution. In exchange of a free ticket, some mothers had in mind to put on a funny show likely to put a smile on the driver’s face. The bus line accepted the idea if the parents overcame the challenge. The other passengers had to pay their ticket and suffer the grumpiness of the driver. If one day you take the bus at the Circus station, be ready for tree-climbing or to juggle. By the way, people and the name of the station on the image above are fictional but the bus station really exists. I have taken the photograph in Uruguay at the bus station of La Paloma, a small fishing port close to the Brazilian border and located on Cape Santa Maria at the mouth of the Plata River. It is one of the main holiday destinations in Uruguay. In summer, thousands of tourists come from all the country, Argentina and Brazil. It is one of the main resorts in Uruguay. http:--claude-lustier.artistwebsites.com-featured-circus-station-planetoday-photography.html
