I headed to Portlaois for the SPWC. The first day started with rain, but the sun didn't want to miss the show & soon a picnic atmosphere settled on the park, with most of the spectators sitting on the grass.
The performers were very talented & appear to be quite self confident, something which artist can struggle with. It is a feeling which i freely admit to battling with.
From a photographic viewpoint some of the acts were a little frustrating, Jack Wise & Kenny Lightfoot are prime examples. As much comics as street performers, leaving me laughing at their acts but struggling to find a action shot.
The rain came back with much vengeance that night ( it is Ireland ), resulting in the acts being moved inside which cramped the performances & left me vainly trying to get decent shots.
The Where's Wally record attempt was also called off,leaving a lot of children & one photographer a little disappointed
