He must have been playing well. A wonderful candid in mono, except the notorious Facebook badge.


The two figures behind add so much despite being de-focused.

Thank you Dave. I took several.. it was very crowded, the audiences were at his back, I picked up this one , because the father looked like counting coins... I paid 2 for several photos.. I like music, so if I take photos of buskers I always pay, or in Europe buy a CD back... but when you play them at home.. the enthusiasm dies out a bit.....Smile
Thank you all.

Great street image, Jasmine. I agree about the two figures out of focus, works really well. The only problem for me is that white wheel behind the piano which drags my eye away from the main subject. You could perhaps crop it out or alter it to make it less noticable.

Good point Nigel. I'll sort it out..
I saw that wheel.. didn't think of it much.. it was his half frying pan on the ground and his facebook page in my mind... I was not sure if should get rid of them or not.. eventually I got rid of the frying pan and kept his page..
Thank you all.
