Sitting Still...

One of the human statues I spotted on a recent trip to Madrid. Funny how this one had me fooled. I usually can suss 'em out.

For those who reckoned it's a real person, you guessed right.

I think I did a not-so-good job in my write up above, sorry.

Still, it was fun watching y'all guess! Especially as I initially had been fooled into thinking he WAS a statue- till he smiled at me!
(I wasn't freaked, honest.)

Well spotted, guys.

And thanks for the encouraging comments on this one!
