She’s Got Legs - Behind The Awkwardness

“My dad and mom were magicians touring with a circus when I was just a small kid. We have a set of promo shots taken in front of this weird clown poster. Among the good photos, there is also this one. Apparently, Mom got tired and went laying on the nearby bed while my dad was making funny faces to the camera and I seemed to be interested in the clown poster.

Cool Ray - Behind The Awkwardness
