A big thank you to Pat, (lucineia) for the huge amount of support that she gives to me, and others on DevianArt, and without who's suggestion this shot would not have been a DD. Check out her fantastic gallery here: [link]

Wow I wish I could have done this to the bongo-player who parked beneath my apartment one summer..... he was trying to get money from the closing-time pub crowd and it was terrible!

LOL Actually this bloke was a very good guitariist, but his singing left a lot to be desired, I did put some money in his box after taking the shot though. Thanks for commenting.

I know it is not what was intended, I gather anyways from the Title :) , but I love how the guy is sitting there playing and the other guy walks by with headphones on looking oblivious......

Yes he just walked into the shot lol, I could have edited him out but I thought that his headphones lent a little more humour to the image :-) Thanks for commenting and also for faving it :-)

Great to find someone with a sense of humour that's (almost) as quirky as mine. A great image opportunity, well spotted and nicely captured - and a well-deserved DD.
