You really are a lucky photographer, has started a collection of statues alive especiais.Para enrich my collection, only two of these in August will go to St. Paul, during a salon photography and imaging, where I plan to shoot with a guide, a photographer friend of many living statues and curious, he also collects. This D.Quixote of their motor, is the maximum, first thing in the world
Successful series of these living statues. I've seen other (and photographed), sometimes identical (photo. 4) on the Rambla in Barcelona.
I see that Don Quijote is modernizing its transportation.
What a wonderful series and it is hard to believe how much effort these people put into their roles. Thanks for posting.

beautiful and fun image of this perfect Don Quijote on an improbable electric biga. :-) Excellent photo quality, especially in sharpness and light management. Very interesting also the photographic composition, with the reflection of the road and the transparency of the glass behind the character. Brava!
Ciao, buona notte e buon marted́!!!
