By popular demand… Since our previous post about the small, travelling circus called Zirkus Berlin proved such a hit with our readers, we’ve decided to publish a few more images from our photo shoots with them.
We’ve had a lot of feedback regarding animal welfare (hardly unexpected). And I can only repeat what I said in yesterday’s post. I do have serious issues with the manipulated animal behaviour at the circus. I do not approve of tigers being kept as entertainment. And I did feel for those huge and lovely looking elephants that are leading a life completely out of touch with their inner beast.
But I also love the magic of the circus! What to do? I am contradicting myself loudly & clearly. So forgive me when I pass on these images of a tradition that I have a love-hate relationship with. They portray the things I love about the circus, and the people in them pretty much sum up my fascination.
