  4. oh, this is a wonderful shot - I not only like the shot of him, but what is going on behind him - your 'one man's spam' post was hysterical!

  10. Just saw The Soloist recently and this reminded me of him... not to say that he has a mental disease!

  11. Your post might be wordless but I have a feeling that the subject of your photo was saying - or singing - a lot! He even has CDs to sell!

  13. Love people getting out there and doing what they love to do. Provided that don't suck, that is. Ha!
    I need to start an entire wall of your prints. I love your stuff! (As you well know!)

  14. I don't think I've ever seen a busker with a microphone. Usually they just set up and belt it out!

  16. Wonderful slice-of-life, Daryl. Love the way he's all dressed up - even to the shoes. The other hat on the ground is cute, too.

    What kind of music was he playing? Was he any good?

    Tough way to make a buck!

  18. I love this shot. The whole set up with the musician, the bikes, and the pedestrians works so well. Lots going on.

  19. A man wearing a suit like that just HAS to be playing the BLUES!

  21. How did I miss this gem?
    Nice technique, and suit, busker-boy ;-]

  22. To answer your question that is a giant calder at the museum. I actually went to Woodstock and so that young man and his guitar made me have a flashback even if he was wearing an American Idol type suit:)
