A LITTLE STREET MUSIC

It’s hard to resist photographing street musicians — buskers.  So I don’t resist.  I stop and listen — many of them are very much worth listening to.  I photograph — even the ones who are less accomplished are, intent on their performance, interesting to look at and fun to photograph.  I chat with them between songs.  I leave my card with “Send me an email — If I get something I like, I’ll send you a print.”  Once in a while they do — and I do.  And I also leave a donation in the hat or instrument case.  One of Robert Fulghum’s (“All I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten”) directives is to give some money to any busker — no matter how bad.
