Please dont turn this into a political photo; I admire him for playing the piano on the street corner. He was an good pianist. I like this photo alot, I like how no one is really paying attention to the man playing, they all just go about their business. Its humbling in a way, but it also captures the true essence of a musician; not to get noticed, but do it for the sheer fun of it.
The final shot in the City Life series, taken at Pikes Place Market, Seattle. Enjoy.
I love the used look of the piano he's playing and the One Way sign especially in this piece. My eyes are immediately drawn to his hair and I especially like how you didn't include his face in the photograph. Beautiful composition.
I was about to ask if you were in Seattle when you took this and then I saw in your comment you were, I saw that guy last year... I bet he's out there everyday though? So I guess that's not that much of a coincidence
It feels good seeing pictures of home. I hope that the little things that make me like Seattle like people like him still remain when I come back to visit after I move out in the future. It's kind of like childhood memories. He adds a good feeling to Pike Place. It's fun having a shared knowledge about these little treasures, much like the strange wall of gum-and-pennies.
I have no clue who this guy is but........
He is AWESOME!!!
First, he's playing piano by the side of the road.
Second, the signs.
I know you said that it wasn't meant to be political. That isn't the reason I like the signs (well it's part of it). I like it because he has signs on a piano.
