A very nice capture of this street entertainer, and I like the images of the people sitting around. This is a great street shot.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Great timing of this capture showing the highly animated nature of the entertainer!! And I love the varying levels of "listening" by the audience.

@Steven: I could have zoomed the lens in to concentrate on the performer, but I preferred the all round performance experience.

@Jypyä Pop: You have to be careful, some of it is like bad Karaoke!!

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

I like that you included people around this performer. I captures the atmosphere in which he plays. His expression is determined, though many around him pay no attention. A real story here, Curly.

@Ruthiebear: Yes, I wanted to tell more than one story with this picture.
