This street character is someone I ran across before, a day I didn’t have my camera and missed him in action and always swore to capture him one day. The man is a one man comedy show with a surreal sense of humour. He doesn’t do it for money or anything; he is just constantly amused by the world as he sees it. His constant prop is the handset part of an old phone which he constantly makes calls on!
This day he is tagging along with the Legalise Cannabis protestors who marched through Dublin in a fragrant cloud of protest, he doesn’t need what they propose, that’s for sure he is naturally out there.
The day I didn’t have a camera, he was using the same junk plastic handset as if it had a built in camera like a modern cell phone to photograph a Rolls Royce parked on the street and snapping shots of his friend another street dweller posing as if he owned it. Sighs .. Never forget a camera.

    You seem to suggest his behavior is somehow unusual. Perhaps you haven't had enough Jameson today!
