It was a nice Saturday afternoon and I was just on my way to get some coffee while I was taken by the atmosphere of something amazing. I had already been hearing unusual music as I was approaching the street but I had no idea I would stumble upon such a visual as well as emotional gift. The masters of the V.O.S.A. Theatre just sucked me into the moment and took my words away. However I took my trusty Holga camera out of my bag as fast as I could, thanked myself for having it preloaded with a black&white 120 film and started to walk around the Wenceslas Square following the artists for about 5 minutes or so while snapping a few photographs.

Besides the breathtaking and magnetic atmosphere I especially loved the music which I wish had recorded for you to hear as well. Hopefully the photographs captured some of it.

And yes, naturally the concentration of people with cameras was pretty high, just like anywhere where's something interesting going on these days. However and as you might imagine and also see in the photo bellow, the performers took it well and kept in good spirits.

I love the way people come together, watch and sometimes even participate on occasions like this one...
