Ana said...

This is freaky! I've never seen such a thing before.

jane said...

Very nicely done! An excellent piece of photo-journalism there ;)

This time I prefer the colors version. That's a very weird aquarium ;)

Laurie said...

This is a cool shot. Like the color better.

But I think the dude is a bit nuts.

i agree wt brono and azhar it look like old scifi in the 50s. i think the same as ana. he is crazy. they said he will stay in the water all the time for a week. if u intersting to see more photos from other photographers u can check at flickr

I heard about this new stunt of his on the radio today - I just dont really get it - he is only going to hold his breath for nine minutes at the end of the weak - I guess its a modern spectical - he should market it as more modern art - I prefered when he did proper street magic - it had more impact for me

Great pictures tho - I like all of them - especiall the one where you isolated the colour on the sphere -

I dont think he will do anything in the UK again after his experiences in London - I get we are just cynics of the highest quality - with a great sense of irony -

Goncolo said...

Nice shot, I like the visual effect of the man inside the cristal sphere.
Thanks for your visit.

Gary said...

I just read about this, apparently he's going to try to hold his breath for 9 minutes...this does look 1950 ish

Dave said...

I do love the old sci-fi quality that others have noted. It's really fun to imagine he is accidentally going to trade brains with a fish or something.

Paul said...

I heard about his latest stunt on the radio this morning here in the UK.

He's going to end up killing himself!

Ray said...

Wow, great shot.. Looks almost like an old sci-fi movie from back in the day

Nicola said...

Wow, how is he gonna stay in there for a week??? I think I'd had enough after a few minutes already.

Paul said...

What a nutjob. Really nice shot, though.

Legabal said...

Great work. Its a science fiction old movie.

S. Crypt said...

wow! this guy is doing it again! I've heard many times before he goes with some of his stunts!
