Clowning Around

This is the third clown I saw in Kinta City these past few months. I shot a photo of the first clown, but did not shoot the second one as he was surrounded by too many kids. I actually met this clown twice in recent days. The first time was to entertain the kids during the Fotokem Camera Fair and this time during a promotion by Astro.

This evening, while we were all trapped in Kinta City because of the raging thunderstorm outside, I had the opportunity to request for a photo shoot. He obliged even though he was already off work.

Just look at how bored he was, singing by himself on an empty stage and without an audience. I often wonder how a clown actually feels behind the heavy makeup. I mean, even if they are displeased, you can’t tell because of their large smiling lips, right?

Did you know, years ago, I actually wanted to join a clown school. As you know, that did not materialize. I guess it was just as well. I don’t think I would ever be able to keep a straight face laughing at myself.
With love

  1. Clowns are so much fun. When I was growing up — my parents always had clowns at my birthday parties.

    I couldn’t imagine being one though. I actually have a friend and his mom is a clown. It’s crazy seeing her in character and seeing her just being a mom. What a difference!

  2. You can never tell when a clown is pissed off. Surely not by their facial expressions.

    During Halloween bank robbers dress like clowns holding up banks leaving behind “treat or trick” stickers.

    Something about clowns that scares me.

  3. Paul, thanks for coming by. I am so honored. 😛

    Your comment makes me think of Santa Clauses doing the same thing. I don’t know why!
