TSC: pushing the boundaries

I had a shiny new-to-me 20mm lens to play with, so I knew that whatever I did for this week's challenge, I'd be playing with distorted perspective. :) My original idea was to mirror his pose, knee-to-knee, and shoot from there; but that turned out not to be a particularly boundary-pushing angle. After playing around a bit I ended up on the ground, camera on the bricks tilted up until the mime filled the frame.

(For those of you who remember back to the Scenes That Evoke A Mood challenge, the guy in the note is actually smiling down at this guy's performance ;) )
