World statues 2013 event in Arnhem, Netherlands

Have you ever considered the fun to be had by spray painting yourself then standing as still as possible for 4 hours out on the street? Well, that’s exactly what 100s of individuals taking part in the annual world statues festival in Arnhem, The Netherlands were doing yesterday!

I went along out of curiosity and the expectation of some good photo opportunities and I was not disappointed. So many of the statues reacted to the camera it was brilliant (if not a little bit embarrassing at times!)

With professional, amateur and kids categories there were loads of performers to watch and photograph. This is rather an image loaded post, but I hope you enjoy the colours and get a feel for the fun and atmosphere of the event.
