Tightrope Walker at Key West Sunset

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Charles Sears

I was traveling with the Florida State Parks AmeriCorps South and North Teams in Key West, Florida when I saw this opportunity to catch a tightrope walker in the sunset with my camera. We were traveling through the Keys in July 2011 to complete environmental conservation projects with some of the state parks in that area. This picture was taken at the square in Key West where all of the street performers show their acts for tips to crowds of tourists.

Location: Key West, Florida USA
