Street performer Iya Traoré, originally from the village of Kebeya, in Guinea, West Africa. A soccer freestyler and ex-Paris St. Germaine player, here performing on a lamppost outside the Sacré-Cœur Basilica in Montmartre, Paris. He's made the Guinness Book of Records several times for having achieved the world record kickups, has performed in more than 40 countries and appeared in numerous music videos and TV shows. The show is well worth catching, and don't forget to leave a donation.

If none of the above makes any sense to you, you are definitely not an aficionado of the British 1960s surreal cult TV series 'The Prisoner'. For those who do understand what this all about this image was captured in April 2017 in the village of Portmeirion, Gwynedd, Wales (where the series was filmed), on the 50th anniversary of the first episode, including a re-enactment of the second episode. The rest of the images from that day can be viewed here.
