Even A Mime Needs Practice

While roaming through New York's Central Park recently I came across this woman who turned out to be a mime. She was practicing her hand movements as she pretended to handle such things as a heart and a butterfly.
I hadn't given much thought to it, but these common street performers have to find a place to hone their skills and Central Park is as good a location as any. I used the slow shutter speed/flash combination to show her hand movements that are central to what mimes do. I wonder if she went to mime college?
