Passion vs Courage: The Tightrope busker portrait by Stella Tooth



I came across this tightropewalker, dressed in a maid’s uniform and using a feather duster and small parasol for balance, in the backstreets of Venice. When she was summoning her courage by a tree to which she’d tied her rope, her face was a picture of concentration. But when she launched out on the tightrope, her passion for her circus skill was clear as she sailed effortlessly out into the crowd and back.
