Carnival 'U Sciaratu' - the Terrified & Terrifying Bushes


These two bushes - you couldn't tell they weren't real when they bent down and stood perfectly still alongside a genuine tree or bush. They performed in the tiny streets of le rocher, trying to get from the safety of a real bush to another - if they saw a little dog, for instance, they'd act terrified and when someone walked past, they'd jump out and frighten them.

I was laughing so much I could hardly keep my camera still.

How fantastic Jilly, I would have loved to see some of the reactions.

I'm still laughing at the image I have of trees running away from dogs.

Who had more fun...the trees or the spectators?

What a fun/funny idea! I wonder where I could find a costume like that....

Looks more like a scene from Dad's Army to me. Just hope a dog didn't come along and lift its leg!

What a great prank. The top pic is perfectly composed. Howver, I wouldn't like being frightened if one of them popped up in gront of me.

Jilly that top photo is a killer and the whole three tell a great story - this is so much fun, I'd love to see them perform. They should come to Avignon!
