I've missed so much being away this week! Love each of your posts below, especially the beach scene at Gwynn's Island. That photo is beautiful, Daryl!Good choice for the winner of the contest, too. Am off to make blueberry pancakes for breakfast. With Maine blueberries. Yum.
Makes me want to sit down and listen. It was so funny last week when we took the grandkids to the big farmer's market in Ithaca - as soon as we got close enough to musicians to begin hearing faint strains of music, the kids started jiving - such a hoot!
Poor guy with the base - when he was a kid they promised him a violin - instead they gave him the big giant base to carry whole his life :)
Very cool shot. :)
Hairy-armed guitar players frighten me. I am always nervous that there will be some sort of catchy ouchy accident and missed notes. Btw, I see that your blogroll is doing what mine and many others is doing, that is, not updating. I'm so pleased that I have new posts up on both my blogs and nobody knows it. Grr.
I loves me some stand up bass. :)
I didn't realize how many fine pictures of life in the bustling city I'd missed until I scrolled down. And I love the picture of the beach and the sky. Have a great Sunday!
Were they good? :)
nothing like it toperk up one's life
I miss walking thru the city on the weekends...such fun.
Lovely sharpe colourful image Daryl....
Music at the food market is only in NY. Missing my old playground. Thanks for sharing.Joyce
Fun summer scene.
To be a musician playing in public you have to have one heck of a thick skin! Street musicians, especially, have to be able to drift off into their own little world 'cause most folks don't pay any attention...Even in some bars with a great band, half the patrons are yammering away about the Palin's hairdo and not even listening...Tough job.Lovely photo, though...great angle, and filled with a certain amount of angst...or maybe that's just me!How's the a/c working?We had a good friend run the NYC 1/2 Marathon today...she did pretty good, too. 2:30 I think - not bad for 45 years old.
I particularly like the juxtaposition (? is that the right word?) of the blue/busy-shirted man playing the instrument to the lady in red behind him who is rushing and hurried to get somewhere fast.blue = calm; red = intense.
totally a summer feel - we have one main street and there are at least three different musicians on any given day and on most days those single musicians turn into little groups as other musicians join them :)
Love this shot, open air markets are wonderful! Thanks for sharing this one.
Love this shot. The colours are so rich.. and it reminds me that our Southside Shuffle (blues fest) is coming up sometime soon.
Now that is truly my kind of day!
now that says summer, my picture is here, hooray for summer!
Always enjoy listening to street musicians on a warm summer day!
Bet it gets tiresome hauling that double bass around the city. But I love stuff like this. Some of these musicians are truly talented!
I'm sure I never thought of there being a farmers' market in NYC. Those are some dedicated farmers to brave traffic and pay parking to haul all that stuff.
