A London photo every day. Some pictures will be there for their own sake, some because they are places you may like to see, all because they are part of what makes London what it is. Requests welcome!

As an erstwhile tubast I've always resented the "clown" acts that belittle or trivialise the instrument. While the ball of flame is impressive, it reduces the tuba to a stereotypical sideshow act, performed by untalented chubby boys or annoying eccentrics (the type who wear bowlers and white gloves).I think if the late Harvey Phillips happened on this buffoon he'd give him a good crack.Great shot. Nice grab of the fireball.
Actually, the playing was quite good, too.....
Which is my point. 99.9% of people will remember the clown with the fireballs, not Schubert's Der Lindenbaum.
A very original snap, don't you think he deserves at least one tip?
