This is a shot I took a while ago in the town centre of Utrecht in The Netherlands. The blind musician was standing in the middle of a crowded square but all the action around him didn't seem to bother him at all.

Hope you are all doing well. Haven't been around much, being busy setting up my freelance translation business - back to the roots so to speak, after more than ten years in the IT industry...

Beautiful image Alex. Must be a reïncarnation of Jacob van Eyck who was a blind recorder player in Utrecht around 1600, if I'm not mistaken.
Good luck with the new business!
